News International says, in some cases, it will apologise and admit liability.

Welsh MP Chris Bryant, who believes he was a victim of phone hacking by the News of the World, has reiterated his call for a judicial review.

The Rhondda MP says he has “anxieties” about previous investigations into phone hacking undertaken by the Metropolitan Police and wants a judicial review.

News International, which owns the newspaper, is offering to pay damages to eight well-known people who brought civil actions claiming their mobile phones were hacked.

Labour MP Mr. Bryant says he wants to know why senior executives at the News of the World did not do a proper investigation and “route out criminality” at the time.
