David Cameron, prime minister, offers a clear rebuke to James Murdoch in a BBC interview and says he has 'questions to answer' in parliament over the Crone and Myler statement:
"Clearly James Murdoch has got questions to answer in parliament and i'm sure that he will do that.
"News International has got some big issues to deal with and a mess to clear up. That has to be done by the management of that company. In the end the management of a company must be an issue for the shareholders of that company but the government wants to see this sorted out."
