Downing Street statement on Jeremy Hunt

A Downing Street spokesperson said:

"Jeremy Hunt's evidence has shown that he acted properly while he was responsible for the BSkyB bid. He took independent advice at every turn, as well as a number of decisions which were against News Corporation's wishes.

"As the Permanent Secretary of the department made clear, Jeremy Hunt set up a process which left him with a 'vanishingly small' chance to 'manipulate' the bid for 'political or other ends'.

"There are some lessons to be learned from this process and that's why the Cabinet Secretary has already written to all departments regarding the way quasi-judicial decisions are taken. The Prime Minister will not be referring Jeremy Hunt to Sir Alex Allan."
