PM refuses to answer MP's question
David Cameron has refused to answer a question in the House of Common on his links to the Murdoch empire.
At Prime Minister’s Questions, Mr Cameron was asked by Labour’s Chris Bryant why he did not release all the text messages he exchanged with the former News International executive Rebekah Brooks.
The Prime Minister said that earlier this year Mr Bryant quoted material about him from the Leveson inquiry that had not been made public, some of which was untrue. For that reason, he would not answer the Labour’s backbencher’s question.
After the issue was raised a point of order, the speaker said: "It is entirely up to ministers how they respond, so I understand the concern or frustration that underlies the point of order, but the responsibilities and powers of the chair are not engaged on the matter."
