The BBC has refuted claims made by the Work and Pensions Secretary that it had failed to give enough prominence to Prime Minister David Cameron's promise of an in-out vote in 2017. A BBC spokeswoman said:
The BBC has given the Conservative Party's policy on an in-out referendum on Europe extensive coverage from the moment the pledge was made, and ever since.
We are satisfied that we have covered the EU referendum promise impartially and accurately.
