Jeremy Hunt: David Cameron rules out Hunt inquiry
David Cameron has told MPs he has seen "no evidence" that Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt acted improperly in handling News Corp's proposed takeover of the broadcaster BSkyB.
Labour wants the prime minister to order an inquiry into whether Mr Hunt broke the ministerial code.
But, in response to an "urgent question", he said this was "not necessary or right".
Speaker John Bercow granted the question following Labour's request.
David Cameron clearly didn't want to be there, forced to come to Parliament by a Speaker who probably didn't want to be seen to play any part in protecting Jeremy Hunt.
The prime minister was combative, at times angry, as he insisted Mr Hunt had acted fairly and impartially in the BSkyB takeover.
For Ed Miliband this is an issue of leadership. The Labour leader said the rules had clearly been broken, yet the prime minister was standing by and doing nothing.
Mr Cameron said Mr Miliband was "weak and wrong" and said it was right that Mr Hunt should give evidence to the Leveson Inquiry rather than face a separate probe into the ministerial code.
The culture secretary will be grateful for the fulsome support the PM gave him.
But he is not in the clear yet - the prime minister repeated that if Leveson uncovered new evidence of any wrongdoing he would act.
The opposition says Mr Cameron's independent adviser on ministerial interests - Sir Alex Allan - should investigate whether Mr Hunt's contacts with Rupert Murdoch's News Corp were too close during consideration of the company's attempt to take over BSkyB.
