David Cameron, George Osborne, Nick Clegg and Gordon Brown are among a string of major political figures due to appear before the Leveson Inquiry next week.
The British Prime Minister, Chancellor, Deputy Prime Minister and former Prime Minister will give evidence to the inquiry into press standards, along with Labour leader Ed Miliband and former Prime Minister Sir John Major.
Deputy Labour leader Harriet Harman and Scottish National Party leader Alex Salmond will also give evidence at London’s Royal Courts of Justice.
Monday to Thursday will be devoted to the evidence of the eight current and former politicians, with the whole of Thursday set aside for Mr Cameron's.
Mr Brown and Mr Osborne will appear on Monday, Sir John, Mr Miliband and Ms Harman on Tuesday and Mr Clegg and Mr Salmond on Wednesday.
Their evidence will come after a one-week break in Lord Justice Leveson’s inquiry.
At the last hearing before the adjournment, on May 31, Jeremy Hunt survived a six-hour grilling over his handling of the News Corporation bid for BSkyB.
Mr Cameron judged afterwards that the Culture Secretary had acted “properly” throughout the period when he was responsible for the bid and decided not to order an investigation into whether he had breached the ministerial code of conduct.
Mr Hunt also insisted there was no reason for him to quit – though he admitted in his evidence that he had considered resigning.
He also accepted that chatty messages he exchanged with News Corp’s James Murdoch while he was responsible for deciding on the BSkyB issue were, with hindsight, inappropriate.
Fresh evidence also emerged of his personal involvement in the BSkyB issue shortly before he was handed quasi-judicial responsibility for it.
Text messages handed over to the inquiry showed he texted Mr Osborne to express fears the Government was going to “screw up” the deal.
He contacted the Chancellor after receiving a phone call from Mr Murdoch questioning the legitimacy of the process when secret recordings of Business Secretary Vince Cable “declaring war” on News Corp emerged.
