The Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) briefed journalists on the Prime Minister’s meeting today with European Commission President-elect Jose Manuel Durao Barroso. He said that it had been a warm meeting which had been wide-ranging, focussing in particular on what Mr Barroso had said were two of his priorities in setting up the new Commission, namely the Lisbon agenda on economic reform and how the European Commission could help to bring about better regulation. Asked if the Prime Minister and Mr Barroso had discussed the Iraq war in the light of the Summit between the two leaders and President Bush in the Azores in March 2003 in the run up to the conflict, the PMOS said not as far as he was aware. Mr Barroso had rather a lot on his plate at the moment as you would expect, and there had been more than enough items for discussion to fill his time with the Prime Minister today.
