Minister who leaked information not fit to serve – Jo Platt

Jo Platt MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, asking an Urgent Question in the House of Commons on Huawei and the National Security Council leaks, said:

“If a Minister did leak this information they are not fit to serve in the cabinet and they are certainly not fit to be Prime Minister. Critical issues of national security should be handled with the utmost care, not used as political ammunition in a Tory Party civil war.

“A full leak inquiry should be undertaken, and if identified, the individual should immediately resign or be removed from their position.”
