Cameron aide Patrick Rock arrested over allegations relating to child porn (Telegraph, March 4, 2014):

Advisor to No 10 helped to draw up government policy on online pornography filters

One of David Cameron’s closest aides has been arrested on suspicion of offences relating to child pornography.

Patrick Rock, who was one of the government’s advisors on policy for online pornography filters, was arrested last month after police examined computers in No 10 Downing Street.

Mr Rock resigned as a policy advisor to the Prime Minister soon afterwards.

No 10 said he was arrested last month “a few hours” after Downing Street contacted police.

The former deputy head of the No 10 Policy Unit has been close to Mr Cameron for two decades. The two men worked for Michael Howard when he was Home Secretary in the 1990s.

In Downing Street, he had the title of deputy director of policy and worked across a wide range of topics, including the government’s policy on child pornography. His seniority was demonstrated by the fact that he was one of only three advisers given his own private office in No 10.

A spokesman for Mr Cameron said that the prime minister had been kept informed of the action against Mr Rock, 62.

The spokesman said: “This is an ongoing investigation so it would not be appropriate to comment further, but the Prime Minister believes that child abuse imagery is abhorrent and that anyone involved with it should be properly dealt with under the law.”

In a statement, Downing Street confirmed the events that led to the arrest.

He said: “On the evening of February 12th Downing Street was first made aware of a potential offence relating to child abuse imagery. It was immediately referred to the National Crime Agency (CEOP). The Prime Minister was immediately informed and kept updated throughout.

“Patrick Rock was arrested at his home in the early hours of February 13th, a few hours after Downing Street had reported the matter.

“Subsequently, we arranged for officers to come into Number 10 have access to all IT systems and offices they considered relevant.”

Downing Street confirmed Rock was one of the advisers involved in the Government’s policy on internet filters to protect against child abuse images online.

Google and Microsoft agreed in November to introduce changes that will prevent such images from being listed in results for more than 100,000 searches.

A Downing Street spokeswoman said: “Patrick Rock was one of a number of advisers and officials involved in dealing with this issue but the work was led by somebody else, and decisions were taken by ministers.”

An NCA spokeswoman declined to comment, stating it did not name suspects on arrest.
