On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I fear that Members may have been inadvertently misled about the Home Secretary's offer to resign. Speaking of an exchange with the Prime Minister, the Home Secretary said:

"I told him I was prepared to resign if he thought it was right. He said he didn't think it was right."

Subsequently, we have been told that the Home Secretary did not offer to resign. I wonder what avenue I can explore as a Member of Parliament to ensure that hon. Members are fully informed on this matter in what I think you will agree, Mr. Speaker, is a national crisis over prisoner releases.
