Lib Dem Simon Hughes calls for Jeremy Hunt inquiry


Deputy leader Simon Hughes has become the first senior Liberal Democrat to join calls for an inquiry into whether Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt breached the ministerial code of conduct.

Downing Street says there are no plans to investigate the contact between Rupert Murdoch's company, News Corporation, and Mr Hunt's former special adviser.

Mr Hughes told the BBC's Question Time that he could not understand why the issue is not being referred to the independent watchdog.
