We don't know if that is true yet or not. Up to MOH or JA to confirm but I assume it is being followed-up on.
One of the reasons these things get said in Parliament is that MPs can't really get into any trouble for saying them. Making the claim outside of parliament is another matter.
I agree but if it is true and the minster that has bought the allegations is a complete cock for not reporting it immediately.
There would be a lot of fact checking going on right now I bet.
