LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s media secretary will make a statement in parliament later on Tuesday about Rupert Murdoch’s bid to buy the rest of pay-TV group Sky (SKYB.L), the leader of the house said on Twitter.

Minister Karen Bradley has been weighing whether to refer Twenty-First Century Fox’s (FOXA.O) bid for Sky for a wide-ranging investigation to assess the impact a takeover would have on the broader provision of news.

Bradley is expected to speak around 1330 local time.
