Andrew Mitchell

Asked about the PAC report on the Andrew Mitchell, and whether the PM would allow the advisor on the Ministerial Code to launch his own investigation, the PMS said that the PM believed the Cabinet Secretary’s inquiry was the right review at the right time and he supported its conclusions. There was no plan to open the review again and there was an ongoing police investigation. The independent advisor could be asked to undertake an inquiry if the PM requested it. Asked when the PM would respond to the PAC’s recommendation that the independent advisor should be able to launch an inquiry without the PM’s invitation, the PMS said the Government would respond in due course.
