He was mocked by his colleagues over the glitch – with Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson joking that Mr Lewis should send some of his own staff on a new cyber security course he was launching for cadets.
Asked if he had considered resigning for the embarrassing security blunder, Mr Lewis would only apologise for being “let down by a third party supplier”.
Mr Lewis told Sky News: “There will be a limited number of our delegates here but we are contacting the delegates concerned to lay out to them exactly what has happened and what they can do about that but any breach is a serious breach and that’s why we are fully investigating it and are taking it very seriously.”
