Asked if it was a slightly unusual procedure for a statement to be released by the Labour Party under the name of the Immigration Minister, attacking David Cameron’s speech on immigration and did the Government share the views expressed by the Labour Party, the PMS replied that she would not get into the Labour Party response. The PMS added that in the next ten minutes, Tony McNulty would respond as Government Minister at the Home Office.

Asked if Liam Byrne’s response was not the Government’s response, the PMS said that it was done in a party political capacity, but his response stood. However, people could expect a further response from Tony McNulty this afternoon.

Asked if it would be the same response or a different response the PMS pointed out that Tony McNulty had not given the response yet, so people would have to wait to hear what he had to say. Asked if he would disagree with the comments of Liam Byrne, the PMS said she couldn’t see that being the case.

Asked if it was because Liam Byrne was doing the Borders Bill, the PMS replied that it was correct that he had been caught up on various things today.
