PM Still Stalling on Bryant Questions

Chris Bryant may have been rude and obnoxious at PMQs when asking Cameron about his Leveson evidence and emails to Rebekah Brooks, but that’s not to say he didn’t have a point. The Prime Minister is still refusing to directly engage with Bryant, instead referring him to this letter he sent to Harman yesterday:

Dear Harriet,

Thank you for your letter of 17 October about my evidence to the Leveson Inquiry.

As you will be aware, on 25 April, Chris Bryant made a point of order in the House in which he suggested that I had misled the House. In making this statement, based on confidential information obtained as a Core Participant to the Leveson Inquiry, he broke an Order made under the Inquiries Act 2005.

The information he used was inaccurate and therefore the suggestion that I had misled the House was not correct. Chris Bryant has apologised to Lord Justice Leveson for his actions and he has apologised to the House for misleading it. However, he has not yet apologised to me.

I am, however, happy to respond to your questions in full. As you know, I set up the Leveson Inquiry. I have co-operated fully with the Inquiry and given them all the material that they have asked for.

I am placing a copy of this letter in the Library of the House.

David Cameron

Why not just answer straight up?
