HL Deb 07 March 2000 vol 610 c131WA
Lord Lamont of Lerwick

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Further to the Written Answer by the Lord Chancellor on 16 December 1999 (WA 47) that no person or persons were responsible for a leak of the conclusions of the second hearing on General Pinochet by the House of Lords but that this was the result of skilful journalism, how the Government think skilful journalism could make such accurate and highly detailed predictions with no inside information. [HL1189]

The Lord Chancellor (Lord Irvine of Lairg)

The findings of the leak enquiry were conclusive and I have nothing further to add to my Written Answer given to the noble Lord on 16 December 1999, Official Report, (WA 47).
