Harriet Harman wants Commons vote on Hunt's behaviour

The Deputy Leader of the Labour Party, Harriet Harman, is attempting to keep up the pressure on the Culture Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, by holding a vote on his behaviour in the Commons.

Ms Harman claimed that Mr Hunt had clearly breached the ministerial code in his handling of the BSkyB takeover bid and she attacked David Cameron for not referring the matter to his independent advisor.

The Prime Minister said he believed that Mr Hunt had acted properly after hearing his minister give evidence to the Leveson Inquiry into Press Standards.
