To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, with reference to the news article entitled Amber Rudd denies seeing leaked Home Office violent crime report, published by The Guardian on Monday 9 April 2018, whether (a) the Minister of State for Policing and the Fire Service (b) her special advisers and (c) special advisers to Ministers in her Department had seen the leaked report.

The former Home Secretary made clear at the launch of the strategy on 9 April that the Guardian had not shared the leaked document with us and so she hadn’t seen it.

This is also the case in relation to the Minister of State for Policing and Fire and special advisors in the Department at the time. However, as the former Home Secretary made clear, she had seen extensive sets of analysis from Home Office officials as the strategy and its underlying evidence developed.
