To ask His Majesty's Government whether any minister or official at the former department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy had any knowledge of, or involvement in, the attempt by lawyers for the Post Office to have Mr Justice Fraser removed from his role as judge in the case Bates and Others vs Post Office Ltd; and if so, when they first become aware of the Post Office's attempts.

These are matters for the statutory Post Office Horizon IT Inquiry. It would be wrong to prejudice its work.
