The Met is currently investigating whether an offence has been committed by the retired officers in question. In addition, the Cabinet Office is also running a probe into the matter.

Commissioner Cressida Dick has reminded all officers of their duty to protect any sensitive information they discover. The Commissioner was clear that in her view this duty of confidentiality endures after officers leave the police force.

I fully support her position and thus we will await the result of both enquiries before making any further comment on the matter.
