Commenting on Downing Street's statement concerning Jeremy Hunt

Below you can read my comment on today's statement by Downing Street concerning Jeremy Hunt:

"It was always the case that it is the Prime Minister's responsibility to ensure Ministers adhere to the Ministerial Code - not Lord Justice Leveson.

"Now Downing Street is saying that the Prime Minister will wait until Jeremy Hunt has given evidence to the Leveson inquiry before he decides whether to refer the case to the independent advisor.

"David Cameron is delaying the decision he knows he should make and is ducking his responsibility."
