Murdochs to appear at Leveson next week

News Corp chief executive Rupert Murdoch will give evidence to the Leveson Inquiry over two days next week.

Murdoch will be quizzed on Wednesday and Thursday about practices at his British newspapers following the phone-hacking scandal that engulfed the News of the World.

His son James, who stood down as News International executive chairman in February, will appear before the inquiry on Tuesday.

Lord Justice Leveson will resume his hearings at the Royal Courts of Justice in central London with evidence from a number of national newspaper proprietors next week.

On Monday he will hear from Aidan Barclay, chairman of Telegraph Media Group, which publishes the Daily Telegraph and Sunday Telegraph, and Evgeny Lebedev, chairman of the companies which own the Independent and London’s Evening Standard.
