Questioned about the new Africa Commission which the Prime Minister had announced today, the PMOS said that this was something which the Prime Minister had always believed should be a high priority. It was a subject to which, quite unapologetically, he would return. The Commission was a way of focussing attention not just on individual crises, but on the whole issue of Africa. He was delighted that Bob Geldof and others had agreed to become involved.
