LONDON (AP) — James Murdoch is being recalled for another grilling before Britain’s Parliament after former News Corp. executives raised serious doubts about his role in the country’s tabloid phone hacking scandal.

The committee of lawmakers investigating the scandal hopes to tie up “one or two loose ends” by recalling the younger Murdoch, committee Chairman John Whittingdale said Tuesday. But the committee said News Corp. chief Rupert Murdoch — who appeared alongside his son at a July 19 U.K. hearing that was televised around the world — was not being recalled.
