Former Legal Manager at News International Tom Crone said: "The CMS Select Committee has concluded that I gave misleading evidence in three specific areas. I do not accept this.

"In particular, the Committee finds that I misled it by giving a “counter-impression” on certain matters. In terms of judicial or formal rulings on evidence, “counter-impression” seems a particularly subjective concept upon which to base such serious allegations."
