#plebgate police minster calls for apology

The Three Police federation representatives that the government is claiming misrepresented their meeting with Andrew Mitchell have been called to apologise for their role in the plebgate scandal

Damian Green said believes that the comments given by the representatives from the West Midlands, West Mercia and Warwickshire divisions following a private meeting with Mr Mitchell after he was accused of calling their Downing Street colleagues plebs, were “palpably untrue”.

Speaking on the BBC’s Andrew Marr show, Mr Green said: “He deserves an apology. Let’s start with the people who left his office and said things that if you read the transcript were palpably untrue.”

Asked if he was referring to the three police officers who met with Mr Mitchell when the allegations first emerged, he replied: “Absolutely those three should apologise.”
