From Sky News:
Speaking on Sky News’ Murnaghan programme, Mr Hughes said he would encourage his fellow Liberal Democrats to vote with Labour, if the opposition tabled a Commons vote on halting the bid.
“If there is a debate and vote in the House of Commons I will be suggesting to my colleagues that we as a party, a party that’s never been close to Murdoch, never been in this inner loop, I think we should make clear that we think there should be a postponement of the decision.
“There shouldn’t be a takeover while the investigations are going on and we should let the police investigations run their course.”
Mr Hughes has also delivered a letter to Ofcom to request that the broadcasting regulator examine whether News Corporation would be a ‘fit and proper person’ to hold a broadcasting licence if the takeover goes ahead.
