Labour leader to challenge Coulson's post

LABOUR'S acting leader, Harriet Harman, is to confront David Cameron for the first time over the appointment of the former 'News of the World' editor Andy Coulson as Downing Street's communications chief.

Ms Harman is expected to use Prime Minister's Questions on Wednesday to raise the issue of what Mr Coulson knew about the hacking of MPs' phones.

Speaking yesterday to the BBC, Ms Harman said there was a "great deal of concern" over Mr Coulson's appointment.

"I think the fact that Andy Coulson is director of communications chosen by the prime minister is a reflection on David Cameron's judgment," she said. (© Independent News Service)
