Cameron's meetings with the Murdoch family

Mr Cameron was asked about meetings with members of the Murdoch family, which owns The Sun newspaper. He told how James Murdoch promised The Sun's support for the Conservatives at a meeting in September 2009 - prior to the May 2010 General Election, after which Mr Cameron became Prime Minister.

It was a drink and a catch up... He wanted to tell me The Sun was going to support the Conservatives. I was obviously pleased.
