Dave v Bryant – Round Two at Noon

When asked a question by Labour niggler Chris Bryant yesterday, Dave sulkily replied:

“The word I’m waiting for from him, because he introduced a point of order claiming that I had misled the House, is ‘sorry’. He has said sorry to everybody else… I think he has said sorry to the House in general but the person he accused of doing something wrong he’s not yet said sorry to. Until I get that apology, I think I’ll leave off the answers.”

With Bryant on the order paper for PMQs today, this could get feisty…

Cameron/Allen Exchange of Letters

These are the letters that the Prime Minister had up his sleeve:

Dear Sir Alex Allan

You will be aware that I will this week be giving evidence to the Leveson Inquiry. As you know, I have decided not to refer Jeremy Hunt to you as I am satisfied that the relevant information about this issue has been established and I am content that he did not break the ministerial code.

Separately, I will be outlining to Leveson some of the initiatives this Government has taken to strengthen accountability and transparency as well as some areas where I am proposing future changes to the current guidance. These include the conduct of special advisers and the handling of quasi-judicial decisions and I would welcome your comments.

Yours sincerely

David Cameron MP

Prime Minister,

Thank you for your letter of 13 June. I note your decision in relation to Jeremy Hunt’s adherence to the Ministerial Code which is of course a matter for you. The fact that there is an on-going judicial Inquiry probing and taking evidence under oath means that I do not believe that I could usefully add to the facts in this case though I remain available should circumstances change or new evidence emerge.

On the broader issues I would welcome the opportunity to comment in more detail before the new guidance is finalised.

Yours sincerely

Sir Alex Allan

Not quite as clear cut as Dave made out, but it stumped Ed enough for a win at PMQs…

Quote of the Day

Charles Clarke says Cameron is the most successful PM for over a century…

“Under Margaret Thatcher the Conservatives gained 99 seats. They lost 211 under John Major, gained one under William Hague, quickly and wisely got rid of Ian Duncan-Smith, gained 32 under Michael Howard and have so far gained 133 under David Cameron who, to the great surprise of many (including senior Conservatives), has turned out to be the most electorally successful Tory leader since 1900.”
