To ask the Prime Minister, pursuant to her answer of 4 February, Official Report, column 682, for what reasons she does not accept the premise on which was based the question about her policy towards setting up formal inquiries into the improper leaking of official information in cases where the salient facts appear to be known in advance of such an inquiry; and if she will make a statement.
