Max Mosley, the FIA president who last year was embroiled in a tabloid sex scandal, will face the UK parliament on Tuesday.

Together with Gerry McCann, the father of missing British child Madeleine McCann, the pair will address Westminster MPs as part of an inquiry about press standards, privacy and libel.

Mosley, 68, faced intense pressure to stand down as head of F1's governing body last year after the News of the World tabloid revealed his alleged "sick Nazi orgy with 5 hookers".

McCann, meanwhile, is expected to be asked about the libel action against Express newspapers, who were ordered to publicly apologise to the family and the McCann's holiday companions following press accusations.

The parliament committee is reportedly probing whether "the balance between press freedom and personal privacy is the right one".
