Live: Murdochs, Brooks, Stephenson & Yates in Parliament | Total Politics

In 2003, as far as I was concerned… which may sound frankly ridiculous now… the press had exercised huge caution… Clearly these allegations that came out two weeks ago, if true, clearly contradict that statement I made… I heard [about Milly Dowler’s phone being hacked] on the Monday before last… We saw the story at the same time that you all saw the story. My initial reaction was one of shock and disgust… The first thing I did was to write to Mr and Mrs Dowler to say that we would get to the bottom of this… I have every confidence that News International and the police will get to the bottom of that.”
