Mr Cameron said: "The police have to answer questions."

Damian Green, 52, expressed fury after he was quizzed for nine hours.

He was later released on bail and told to return for further questioning
in February.

In a statement, the Conservative Party said: "Mr Green has legitimately
revealed information which the Home Office chose not to make public.
Disclosure of this information was manifestly in the public interest. Mr
Green denies any wrongdoing."

Commenting on the arrest, Downing Street said: "This is a matter for the
police. The Prime Minister had no prior knowledge of the arrest and was
only informed after the event."
