Brown has to be straight with people about al-Megrahi

David Cameron has criticised Gordon Brown’s belated response to the release of Abdelbaset Ali al-Megrahi

Cameron criticised the Prime Minister's claim that there was no "double dealing".

"We learnt this morning from the Foreign Secretary that a Government minister told the Libyans that the Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary did not want Mr. Megrahi to die in a Scottish jail. But at the same time we know the Government was giving assurances to the United States that Mr. Megrahi would spend his full sentence in a Scottish prison".

He added that almost as serious as this was the double dealing with the British public, where "on the one hand Gordon Brown has completely refused to give his opinion on the release of this mass murderer but on the other hand was content for the Libyans to be told that he shouldn’t die in prison".

Cameron concluded by calling on the Prime Minister to "answer the questions that need to be answered" and to "set up an inquiry so we can sort out this mess once and for all".
