James Morris calls for publication of previous Government’s Downing Street phone records
13th June 2012
Speaking during Prime Minister’s Questions in the House of Commons, James Morris responds to developments in the Leveson inquiry by calling for the publication of the previous Government’s Downing Street phone records.
James Morris (Halesowen and Rowley Regis) (Con): Given the fascinating evidence that was presented by his predecessor to the Leveson inquiry, does the Prime Minister agree that it would be overwhelmingly in the public interest to publish the Downing street phone records, so that we can finally establish what conversations took place between his predecessor and Rupert Murdoch?
The Prime Minister: As my hon. Friend knows, Governments cannot release information provided by previous Governments, but I am sure that this is an issue that the previous Prime Minister will want to consider, given the very clear statement that he made.
