Downing Street says Baroness Butler-Sloss' stepping down from the abuse inquiry was "entirely her decision".
The Government's view hasn't changed, that she would have done a first-class job as chair.
The reasons for her appointment still absolutely stand in terms of her professional expertise and her integrity, which I don't think has been questioned from any quarter whatsoever, and rightly so.
The Baroness says she did not consider the "difficulties" caused by her background and family connections to the child sex abuse inquiry.
Questions have been raised of former High Court judge Baroness Butler-Sloss since her appointment last week.
22 police officers are now assigned to Operation Fernbridge - the probe into claims of a Westminster cover-up of sex child abuse.
