Former News International Executive Chairman James Murdoch told MPs in a letter: "It has been suggested that my decision to resign my role at News International reflected past knowledge of voicemail interception or other alleged criminal wrongdoing at News International. This is untrue.

"I take my share of responsibility for not uncovering wrongdoing earlier. However, I have not misled Parliament. I did not know about, nor did I try to hide wrongdoing."
