Labour Party: Leveson has made it clear today that he will not reach a verdict on whether Jeremy Hunt breached the Ministerial Code - Harman

Labour Party press release

Harriet Harman MP, Labour's Deputy Leader and Shadow Culture Secretary,  responding to Lord Justice Leveson's comments that he would not judge  whether Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt had breached the Ministerial Code, said:

"Lord Justice Leveson has made it clear today that he will not reach a verdict on whether Jeremy Hunt breached the Ministerial Code.

"It was never the role of the Inquiry to do this and the Prime Minister and Jeremy Hunt should stop trying to hide behind it.

"As a Secretary of State, Jeremy Hunt is accountable to the House of Commons and I have today written to the Speaker to express my concern that he is evading his responsibility to Parliament.

"I have also written to Jeremy Hunt on three occasions asking him to disclose important information which he steadfastly refuses to do.

"Jeremy Hunt has breached the Ministerial Code, misled Parliament and failed to act in an impartial manner during the BSkyB bid. It is  ludicrous that the Prime Minister has refused to refer him to the Independent Adviser on Ministers' Interests.

"The Prime Minister and Jeremy Hunt are using every trick in the book to avoid any kind of investigation. They clearly have something to hide and Jeremy Hunt must resign."
