Dee Doocey to raise Metropolitan Police contacts with the News of the World

This morning's Independent reports that the Commissioner of the Metropolitan Police dined privately with senior executives from the News of the World seven times over a four-year period during which the force turned down calls for its investigation into phone hacking to be reopened.

The paper also quotes Dee Doocey, a Lib Dem member of the Metropolitan Police Authority, as saying:
"Imagine the outcry there would be if the Commissioner was seen dining with a member of the public who was the subject of a police investigation."
Dee says she will raise the matter at today's meeting of the Authority.
