Hugh Grant to Meet Culture Minister Ahead of Phone-Hacking Inquiry Findings (Report)
LONDON -- Maria Miller, the British arts, media and culture minister, will meet members of the "Hacked Off" campaign, including Hugh Grant, according to a report in The Guardian.
Miller, who replaced Jeremy Hunt as culture secretary in September this year, will meet with reps from "Hacked Off," a not-for-profit company that campaigns for press reform in the wake of the phone hacking scandal.
Grant is a director of the lobby group and will meet with Miller ahead of the publication of the findings of the Leveson inquiry, the investigation into U.K. press standards and ethics which took evidence for over a year.
Grant himself gave evidence to the inquiry in November 2011.
According to The Guardian, Miller is understood to be keen to familiarize herself with some of the key stakeholders involved in the Leveson inquiry ahead of its expected publication in November this year.
The meeting between the minister, Grant and other Hacked Off members is expected to take place Friday next week.
