Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn accused Morning Star-allergic Minister Ed Vaizey of dishing out a "nonsensical" one-word answer to a parliamentary question today.
Mr Corbyn put down a straightforward question asking what discussions Culture Secretary Maria Miller had held with the Morning Star "as part of her consultation on the future of the newspaper industry in relation to the Leveson inquiry."
Second-ranking Culture Minister Ed Vaizey sent back the written answer today.
It said simply: "None."
Mr Corbyn told the Star: "I am genuinely shocked that a minister in receipt of a serious parliamentary question should give a one-word answer.
"I will not be batted-off by this nonsensical contentious approach.
"I will now table further questions asking him to list all the newspaper editors he has had contact with following the Leveson inquiry."
Mr Vaizey angered left MPs by taking six weeks to concoct a silly letter in response to protests from Morning Star editor Richard Bagley that he was excluded from meetings of national newspaper editors on press regulation.
Foreign Minister Alistair Burt's admission that the Cameron government has "supported" a survey of attitudes to US drone strikes in Pakistan's tribal areas amounts to a tacit admission of British involvement.
