Bryant Apologises to the House

After Guido brought you the news that Bryant had apologised to Lord Justice Leveson for his leaky ways, yesterday he apologised to the House:

“On a point of order, Mr Deputy Speaker. On 25 April, I told the House that the Leveson inquiry had published certain information regarding meetings that had been held between Rupert Murdoch and the Prime Minister. I believed at the time that that was the case, but it has subsequently turned out not to be true. I have, of course, apologised to Lord Justice Leveson, but I thought I should take this opportunity to apologise to the House as well. I hope the apology will be accepted. I had no intention of misleading the House; that was purely inadvertent.”

Naughty boy.

Eagle eyes blogger Alex Andreou has picked up at least one extra meeting revealed in Coulson’s evidence yesterday, but it seems the Cabinet Office amended their “full” list last December to include the New York meeting. It’s all rather vague though…
