The arrest of Damian Green MP raises many significant questions, but one wonders whether the same matters of principle regarding leaks will be applied to HM Treasury and its' Ministers.
Much of the Pre-Budget Report's contents were leaked in the weekend press ahead of Darling's speech. Reasonably to be considered price sensitive information eg Government forecasts affect share and gilt prices, these leaks surely warrant investigation on a similar basis as immigration figures.
Or are there "good" leaks and "bad" ones?
