Securing Web Applications Made Simple and Scalable

Prime Minister David Cameron will appear at the Leveson Inquiry next week.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, and former Labour PM Gordon Brown will also face a grilling at the media ethics probe.

According the inquiry's witness list [PDF], Cameron will be the sole person to give evidence next Thursday to Lord Justice Leveson, whom the prime minister appointed as chairman to examine the relationship of the press with the public, police and politicians.

Justice Leveson, along with six independent assessors, previously delved into the culture, practices and ethics of the media.

Cameron announced the two-part inquiry on 13 July last year in response to the phone-hacking scandal at News International, Rupert Murdoch's British newspaper empire.

Culture secretary Jeremy Hunt faced Leveson at the end of last month, when he defended his actions during Murdoch's failed BSkyB takeover bid.

He told the inquiry at the time that he had been "sympathetic" towards the proposed deal. ®
