Former News International chief executive Rebekah Brooks will be quizzed about the financial affairs of the News of the World today as she continues giving evidence to the hacking trial.
Brooks, 45, went into the witness box yesterday, and in a tense exchange with her lawyer Jonathan Laidlaw QC, denied knowing about private investigator Glenn Mulcaire who was contracted to the NotW.
Asked by Mr Laidlaw whether the phone hacking activities Mulcaire has admitted to had ever been drawn to her attention during her time as editor of the NotW between 2000 and 2003, she replied: "No, not at all."
She has already told the Old Bailey trial that as editor, she would have to approve any "big spends" that would bust her weekly budget.
Mr Laidlaw told the jury that today's line of questioning would include finance, budgets and spending.
Brooks, of Churchill, Oxfordshire, denies conspiring to hack phones, conspiring to commit misconduct in public office; and conspiring to cover up evidence to pervert the course of justice.
Six other defendants in the case, including another NotW former editor Andy Coulson, deny all the charges against them.
