MPs are expected to grill James Murdoch for a second time, but no date has been set by the media, culture and sports committee yet.

The News International chairman, son of News Corp mogul Rupert Murdoch, will be asked in to Parliament again only after the MPs Tom Watson, Louise Mensch and their committee colleagues have heard evidence from Les Hinton, an unnamed representative from Farrer & Co solicitors and lawyer Mark Lewis.

A media, culture and sports committee spokeswoman confirmed to The Register that no date had been set for either session yet.

She added that James Murdoch would only be recalled after his father's right-hand man for 52 years, Hinton – who resigned in July amid allegations of widespread phone-hacking at the now-defunct NI Sunday tabloid News of the World – had appeared before the MPs.

Lewis, who represents murder victim Milly Dowler's family, and Farrer & Co – which acted for NI subsidiary News Group Newspapers in handling claims issued by former Football Association boss Gordon Taylor – will also be asked to give evidence before Murdoch is asked to reappear before the committee.

Separately, it has been reported by the Guardian that the mother of 7/7 bombing victim Christian Small is to pursue a civil case against NI over alleged voicemail interception. ®
