Gwrthodwyd y cais gan Attorney General's Office.

Dear Attorney General's Office,

We have seen the Prime Minister publicly state that he believes Dominic Cumming’s journeys to Durham and Barnard Castle were not a breach of the law. My question is, has the Prime Minister, any other Minister, Government Official, or anyone else connected to Government sought legal advice from the Attorney General or any Government legal adviser before reaching this conclusion?

Yours faithfully,

Craig Roch
