May: Home Office whistleblower was quizzed by police

Theresa May says she was informed a whistleblower that claimed to know about alleged funding of a paedophile campaign group had chosen not to be interviewed by the Home Office.

Tim Hulbert had told ITV News he was not interviewed during a Home Office probe into claims the department had provided money to the Paedophile Information Exchange.

Ms May told the Home Affairs Select Committee "the information I have got is that he was invited for an interview and then decided not to undertake that", having instead given information to the Metropolitan Police that "could be shared" with the department's investigation.
