Police Investigation

Asked if the Prime Minister might be required to give evidence to the police as part of their investigation into political funding, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that he didn’t give a running commentary on any police investigation, this investigation was no different. As Mike O’Brien had said that allegations had been made which the police were looking into, but just because those allegations had been made that did not mean there was any truth in them.

Asked if the Prime Minister was prepared to give evidence to the police, the PMOS repeated that he would not give a running commentary on the investigation. Put to him that others had answered the question and it was odd that the Prime Minister wasn’t saying anything, the PMOS said that it was not odd given that there was an ongoing investigation, he didn’t comment on other investigations, why should he comment on this one. Put to him that Downing Street had commented on the Hutton inquiry, the PMOS said that that had not been a police investigation.
