Commenting on the announcement that Rebekah Brooks has resigned as Chief Executive of News International, Co-Chair of the Liberal Democrat Culture, Media, Olympics and Sport Parliamentary Party Committee, Don Foster said:

"At along last Rebekah Brooks has made the right decision, but it is far too late.

"It was disgraceful that Rupert Murdoch, when he arrived in the UK, said that his top priority was Rebekah Brooks rather than the people who had been affected by the alleged illegal activity of a small number of his staff.

"Brooks' resignation should not deflect attention from the police inquiry and the other judicial inquiries which must progress as quickly as possible so we can sort out this mess and return to having confidence in our media."
