Parliament to Quiz Defense Sec’s Pal

The former flatmate of British Defense Secretary Liam Fox will face questioning Tuesday over whether he profited from his unofficial role as adviser. Fresh details emerged Monday that Adam Werritty met with Fox on 18 of his official trips abroad, including a four-day trip to Washington this summer during which Fox met with officials from the Pentagon and Capitol Hill. British politicians are concerned that Werritty profited off his connections to Fox, and that Fox may have even turned a blind eye to it. So far, however, Prime Minister David Cameron continues to give Fox his backing.
