General Motors Co. CEO Mary Barra will testify next month at a hearing by a House panel investigating the delayed recall of 1.6 million small GM cars.

The investigative panel of the House Energy and Commerce Committee will hear Barra's testimony on April 1. The head of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, David Friedman, has been invited to testify the same day.

The committee announced it Thursday.

This week Barra apologized for deaths linked to the delayed recall. She says GM took too long to tell owners to take their cars in for repairs of a defect involving ignition switches. She also named a new head of global safety.

The Department of Justice is investigating whether any laws were broken in the way Detroit-based GM handled the recall.
