Darling Denies Cover Up

Chancellor Alistair Darling is standing by his version of events of how discs containing the personal details of 25 million people went missing.

The Treasury said there was nothing in e-mails released on Thursday to contradict the chancellor's account.

The e-mails suggest a senior manager was involved - something not mentioned in Mr Darling's statement to MPs.

BBC Political Editor Nick Robinson said:

"I am told that when he spoke to the Commons the chancellor had not seen the e-mails and had not been told of the potential involvement of a senior official."

He added:

"The suggestion that a single 23-year-old on low pay at the Child Benefit Centre in Washington is solely responsible for this saga may suit certain people - including the managements of the NAO and HMRC who have clearly clashed in their accounts of this affair - but it beggars belief."
