At Prime Minister’s questions this week, Nia Griffith MP asked the Prime Minister to publish a list of all ministers, including himself, and any Downing Street staff who, since May 2010 have met Mr Adam Werrity, the self-styled ‘adviser’ to Liam Fox, in either a social or an official capacity. She then pursued the matter with the Leader of the House, pressing him to say when this information would be published and demanding a ministerial statement if anything of substance emerges.
“If there is any lobbying or breach of the ministerial code, people want to know whether this matter is confined to the Secretary of State for Defence, or whether other government ministers are involved. The longer the Prime Minster delays publishing this information, the more suspicions people will have. And we are still waiting for the Prime Minister to fulfil his pre-election promise on ensuring greater transparency on lobbyists.”
