Downing Street press release
The Prime Minister's response to the Parliamentary Question for Named Day Answer on 19 October 2012 by Chris Bryant MP:
THE PRIME MINISTER
I refer the hon. Member to my letter to the right hon. Member for Camberwell and Peckham (Ms Harman) of 18 October 2012. A copy has been placed in the Library of the House.
2. The Prime Minister's response to the letter from Harriet Harman MP:
Thank you for your letter of 17 October about my evidence to the Leveson Inquiry.
As you will be aware, on 25 April, Chris Bryant made a point of order in the House in which he suggested that I had misled the House. In making this statement, based on confidential information obtained as a Core Participant to the Leveson Inquiry, he broke an Order made under the Inquiries Act 2005. The information he used was inaccurate and therefore the suggestion that I had misled the House was not correct. Chris Bryant has apologised to Lord Justice Leveson for his actions and he has apologised to the House for misleading it. However, he has not yet apologised to me.
I am, however, happy to respond to your questions in full. As you know, I set up the Leveson Inquiry. I have co-operated fully with the Inquiry and given them all the material that they have asked for.
I am placing a copy of this letter in the Library of the House.
(Signed David Cameron)
