Cameron Dali Lama, A former minister who claims he was banned from meeting the Dalai Lama writes to David Cameron complaining that a Foreign Office instruction “crossed a line”, writes Jane Deith.

Tim Loughton, who was children’s minister until the cabinet reshuffle, was due to meet the exiled Tibetan spiritual leader at a private lunch on 20 June.

The meeting was arranged by the Tibet Society in the apartment of the House of Commons Speaker John Bercow. No media were invited.

But Mr Loughton has revealed that an hour and half before the lunch, he was told not to attend by the then Foreign Office minister Jeremy Browne. Transport Minister Norman Baker MP was also told not to go.
