The Information Commissioner has written to the chairman of the Home Affairs Select Committee urging "patience" after he threatened to publish the names of clients of rogue detectives, compiled by the Serious Organised Crime Agency.
Writing in a blog Mr Graham said he has written to Keith Vaz urging him not to go through with his threat to publish the names of the clients on the list by midday today.
"It's not clever to start a criminal investigation by publishing the names of everyone and everything you're investigating.
"That's why we've stated we're not publishing the list at this stage, and why I've written to Keith Vaz MP to urge similar patience on the part of his Select Committee.''
