The Data protection minister Michael Wills claims he knew nothing of missing discs until Alistair Darling made his statement in the House of Commons. BE WARNED, THIS IS NOT A JOKE, THERE WILL BE NO PUNCHLINE!
Mr Wills told the joint committee on human rights: "I'm afraid I learnt about it when I heard the statement in the House of Commons". He also claimed that he was unaware of any of the other recent security failures. The Earl of Onslow asked: "So there are lots of leaks and you know nothing about it - and you're minister for data protection?"
SEE, I TOLD YOU, IT'S NO JOKE.
