London—The U.K. Parliament's Culture, Media and Sport committee has recalled James Murdoch and Les Hinton to testify on new developments in News Corp.'s phone-hacking scandal, according to various media reports. Murdoch is News Corp.'s deputy COO, and Hinton is the former CEO of Dow Jones & Co., whose resignation this summer was related to the scandal. Murdoch is being recalled to be questioned about discrepancies in testimony and evidence regarding when he became aware of how widespread phone hacking was at the News of the World tabloid, which was closed this summer. Hinton is to be questioned about a $240,000 payment made to reporter Clive Goodman, who was terminated in the phone-hacking scandal in 2007.
