UPDATE 1-Pressure set to mount on James Murdoch | Reuters

The Murdoch family’s grip on Britain’s BSkyB is coming under increased scrutiny, with some shareholders concerned that an imminent report from lawmakers will increase the pressure on James Murdoch to give up his chairmanship of the satellite broadcaster.

The report from the parliamentary committee investigating the phone hacking scandal has been delayed but is now expected before Easter.

It will come hot on the heels of news that UK broadcast regulator Ofcom has intensified its investigation into whether BSkyB’s links with Murdoch and News Corp make it fit to hold a broadcasting licence.
