Tories claim Gordon Brown knew about bugging of Muslim MP

An inquiry was launched today after it was claimed high-profile Muslim MP Sadiq Khan was secretly bugged twice by Scotland Yard’s anti-terrorist unit while he visited a prisoner in jail – and that Prime Minister Gordon Brown knew about it. Shadow home secretary David Davis has claimed he wrote to Prime Minister Gordon Brown several weeks ago warning him that a Labour MP was being bugged. However in a statement today, Gordon Brown said he “knew nothing” about Mr Davis’ claims.
