Blocking intelligence report undermines the democratic process


Commenting on reports that Number Ten is blocking the publication of the Intelligence and Security Committee's report until after the General Election, Liberal Democrat Shadow Foreign Secretary Chuka Umunna said:
“It is unacceptable that Boris Johnson is blocking the publication of this report until after the election. It undermines our democratic process.
“The report may contain crucial information that the Liberal Democrats believe should be in the public domain before the country goes to the polls.
“That is why I have written to the Cabinet Secretary, Mark Sedwill, to ask that he do everything in his power to secure the report’s release before we go to the polls. Liberal Democrats will continue to demand that the Conservative government publish this report as a matter of urgency.”

It is more than likely being held back cos it has things in it that are detrimental to the Tories success at the election.
