Rogue detective clients list stays secret

A list of clients of rogue private detectives will not be published by MPs "for the time being" after the data watchdog intervened.

Information Commissioner Christopher Graham urged the Home Affairs Select Committee not to publish a list of 102 organisations and individuals who used rogue investigators while his office conducted its own investigation.

Committee chairman Keith Vaz MP said: "The Information Commissioner has given the committee an explicit commitment that he will pursue this matter to its appropriate end and that the victims will receive justice."

Vaz said Graham would appear before the Committee after his "scoping exercise" so that MPs could assess whether the investigation "fulfils all that is required".
