May 'ducked questions' on Gove letter, Labour MPs claim

Labour MPs have criticised Theresa May for "ducking" questions over who authorised the release of a letter she wrote to Michael Gove about alleged radicalisation in some Birmingham schools.

The Home Secretary told the House of Commons that she "did not authorise" the release of the letter but members of the opposition, including the shadow leader of the House of Commons Angela Eagle, complained she would not say who did.
