Lies, damn lies and Labour

Does the BBC keep a record of the frequency with which Government Ministers are unavailable for interview on Radio 4's 'PM' when the news is negative? Is the frequency increasing?

No one was available from the Ministry of Defence to answer accusations that the lack of body-armour in Iraq had resulted in the death of a British soldier.

No one was available from the Home Office to answer fears that UK public services could be overwhelmed by Bulgarian and Romanian immigrants next year.

Two refusals in one day, it could be a new record!
