Peerages Police Inquiry

Asked why Nigel Griffiths had said that the CPS had said there was not sufficient evidence to proceed when the position at No10 was not to comment, the PMOS said that he suspected that this had followed the Financial Times report. The journalist was right about Downing Street position, which was not to comment on any ongoing Police investigations. This had been our position throughout this particular situation. Asked whether the Prime Minister had been invited to speak to the Police, the PMOS thanked the journalist for the opportunity to answer and the answer remained no. Asked whether any others in No10 had, the PMOS said that he had nothing new to say on that subject either, which if journalists had done their own monitoring would know was also consistent with what he had been saying all along.
