Gary Mckinnon

Asked what the Prime Minister’s position was on Gary McKinnon, the PMS said that the Home Secretary was still considering the case and when a decision was reached an announcement would be made.

Asked why the decision was taking so long, the PMS said that it was a matter for the Home Office.

Asked whether the Prime Minister agreed with Gordon Brown, following further Wikileaks cables showing Mr Brown had asked the US whether Mr McKinnon could serve any sentence in the UK, the PMS said that the Prime Minister made some comments setting out his position on the issue in the US in the summer and that had not changed.

  1. I hope the PM will not be bullied by US on this tragic case, US have nothing to say having allowed secret documents to reverberate around the world. The deportation act which is very biased against UK should be repealed.
