Steve Baker on Tory reaction to Corbyn spy claims

A minister is asked for his reaction to claims by the defence secretary that Jeremy Corbyn had "betrayed his country" and a security minister comparing the Labour leader to Kim Philby following press reports about his meetings with a Czech spy in the 1980s.

Brexit Secretary Steve Baker said "it was a matter for them" and told Daily Politics presenter Andrew Neil: "I am not going to allow you to draw me intro potentially libelling anybody."
