Harman chides Cameron over Hunt BSkyB row

David Cameron has decided not to order an inquiry into whether Jeremy Hunt broke the ministerial code, after the culture secretary was grilled at the Leveson Inquiry.

Mr Cameron believes his minister acted properly when he was responsible for Rupert Murdoch's BSkyB takeover bid, Downing Street said.

But deputy Labour leader Harriet Harman called the decision not to refer Mr Hunt's case "disgraceful" and "deplorable".

"There is no doubt about it. He (Hunt) broke the ministerial code", Mrs Harman added.
