We can see that there are some MPs who are prepared and willing to bring this case to the attention of the House.
David Anderson (Blaydon, Labour)
To ask the Secretary of State for Justice what recent assessment he has made of the case of Hollie Greig; and if he will make a statement.
- Hansard source (Citation: HC Deb, 22 March 2012, c842W)
Jonathan Djanogly (Parliamentary Under Secretary of State (HM Courts Service and Legal Aid), Justice; Huntingdon, Conservative)
As this case is the subject of ongoing court proceedings, I am prevented by Section 12 of the Administration of Justice Act 1960 from making any comment.
And he would be right, in any other place. However, we see the Under Secretary of State ignoring the fact that he has parliamentary privilege and can make whatever statement is required, in the House. Djangly has just shown himself up as part of the problem, not the solution.
So go on Djanogly, make a statement to the House, you know you can do it..
