Cameron refuses to release further ‘cozy’ Brooks texts
London: British Prime Minister David Cameron has refused to agree to the publication of any further text messages exchanged with former News International executive Rebekah Brooks.
Copies of their texts were handed by Brooks to the Leveson Inquiry into press standards, but most have been kept secret after Lord Justice Leveson deemed them irrelevant to his inquiry.
On a visit to the Middle East, Cameron was whether he would object to all his personal texts with Brooks being published.
“I set up the Leveson Inquiry, I carried out all the proper steps to give the Leveson Inquiry the information it asked for, and it is for the Leveson Inquiry to deal with that; and I don`t think there is anything that I can usefully add to that,” he replied.
According to the Telegraph, he was asked again whether, in the interests of transparency, he would publish the texts anyway "and be done with it".
“I think the best thing to do, having set up an inquiry, is to comply with the terms of that inquiry, and I think it should be taken from there,” Cameron replied.
According to the paper, the remarks are the first time he has addressed directly the question of whether he would publish the texts, after avoiding the question from Labour MPs in the Commons.
