Kevan Jones MP, Labour’s Shadow Defence Minister,  responding to news that Harvey Boulter intends to subpoena both Liam Fox and Adam Werritty, said:
“There are big, unanswered questions remaining over Liam Fox and Adam Werritty’s activities.

“It is regrettable that US courts rather than the UK Government may reveal the full facts.  The Prime Minister’s investigation was inadequate and there is much evidence which merits real scrutiny.

“It is important that we understand what happened at one of the Government’s most sensitive departments for the 18 months Dr Fox was in office, in order to be confident that similar activities will never take place again. The Government should have a full and thorough investigation.”
