The ex-deputy editor of the News of the World has told the Leveson Inquiry he did not put any of his contacts "in an armlock" to provide favours.
Neil Wallis said: "I am a journalist. Journalists live or die depending on their contacts...I nurtured those contacts."
Last week the head of the Met's press office Dick Fedorcio resigned.
He quit after questions were raised over a PR contract awarded to Mr Wallis's firm.
