As of 11th February 2019, his speech of 14th October 2014  remained, unabridged, on his own website.

On 2nd April 2021, the Daily Mail published the first instalment of Sir Alan’s political diaries. In the entry for 16th July 2016, Sir Alan reportedly complained that he had not been appointed Minister for the Middle East, denying that he had “ever so much as sided with anti-Semitic [sic] people or said anything near it”. He reportedly attributed the rebuff to opposition from the Conservative Friends of Israel group, who he accused of “just [wanting] to belittle and subjugate the Palestinians”, and to Theresa May’s special adviser Nick Timothy, who, he claimed, had “also been got at”. Mr Timothy subsequently refuted this assertion.
