Should there be a public inquiry into the phone hacking allegations?

Families of July 7 2005 bombing victims have been told they may have been targeted by phone hackers as MPs prepare to debate the scandal.

The new claims come after police confirmed that the parents of murdered Soham schoolgirls Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman were contacted by officers on the News of the World hacking inquiry, and after allegations that the phone of murder victim Milly Dowler was hacked.

News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks is likely to face new calls for her resignation at today’s three-hour emergency Commons session, when MPs will consider whether there should be a public inquiry into the saga.
