Clegg 'not hung up' on Leveson probe
Nick Clegg said he would not get “hung up” on whether the relationship between Jeremy Hunt’s office and News Corporation was investigated by Sir Alex Allan or Lord Leveson.
But David Cameron yesterday insisted he would only consider calling an investigation into whether the Culture Secretary had breached the Ministerial Code during the BSkyB takeover bid after the Leveson Inquiry had heard his evidence.
Mr Hunt has come under further pressure to resign today after a poll found 49% of the British public think he should resign from his role as Culture Secretary over links between his office and News Corporation during the BSkyB takeover bid.
The ComRes poll for ITV News found that only 16% of the public want Mr Hunt to keep his job, while three out of five voters called for an independent inquiry into Mr Hunt.
