Butler Inquiry

Asked if the Butler Committee would continue with its Inquiry, the PMOS said yes. As they had explained in their statement issued last night, “The Committee must start by looking at structures, processes and systems before considering which, if any, individuals should be held accountable”. Asked if the Prime Minister was intending to reply to yesterday’s letter from the Leader of the Opposition informing him of his party’s withdrawal, the PMOS said that the Prime Minister was a very courteous man and would no doubt respond in due course. Asked if Downing Street would publish the letter in the same way that the Opposition Leader had published his yesterday, the PMOS said that it was our usual practice to leave it up to the recipient of a Prime Ministerial letter to decide whether they wished to publicise it or not.
