News of the World

Asked if anyone in No10 or in Whitehall had had their phones hacked into, the PMS replied that he would not comment in detail on security issues regarding staff at No10 or Government Ministers. If there were further allegations of phone-tapping then they would be for the police to investigate.

Asked if he thought the former Deputy Prime Minister should have been told about alleged phone-tapping, the PMS said that he did not think that was a question for him. As the Prime Minister and David Hanson had been making clear, the police were due to give a statement later today and he would not comment in detail ahead of that statement.
