AN SNP MP has branded Theresa May “one of the most evasive Prime Ministers in history” after the Tory leader again refused to answer questions over meetings between the UK Government, Cambridge Analytica and Canadian political consultancy and technology firm AggregateIQ.

At Prime Minister’s Questions in the Commons yesterday, Deidre Brock challenged May to “spill the beans” on who from her government met with Cambridge Analytica and AggregateIQ and when meetings took place, following confirmation from the Foreign Office that they happened.

Both companies were accused of using illegal Facebook data collection methods during the Brexit vote and 2016 US election. Downing Street has previously denied that meetings took place.

The SNP have been urging May to “come clean” on connections between her government and the firms. Brock has written to the UK Government several times about the meetings, and repeatedly raised the issue at PMQs. She says she has received different information from different departments.

It was reported in the Times last year that the parent company of Cambridge Analytica, Strategic Communication Laboratories, has received hundreds of thousands of pounds from the UK Government over the past decade.

Brock said: “Theresa May must be one of the most evasive Prime Ministers in history. She has once again dodged my questions on these murky meetings, despite her government confirming they took place.

“It is high time the Prime Minister came clean on when these meetings took place, who from her government attended and what was discussed. These companies have been slammed by the Electoral Commission and Information Commissioner yet they have had unrecorded access to the heart of this Tory government.

“Not recording a visit in the transparency data register is a serious breach of the rules – both Downing Street and the Tory Party have difficult questions to answer over their dealings with Cambridge Analytica and AggregateIQ.”
