Asked about the Prime Minister's meeting with the Vice President of Iraq today, the Prime Minister's Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that discussion had included the run-up to the elections in Iraq in January and the joint determination to see that process through.
Asked what the Prime Minister could say to assuage the majority of non-abusive males who might be perturbed to learn that their pregnant wives or partners would be asked routinely whether they were victims of domestic violence, the PMOS said that the Prime Minister, like everyone else, was obviously anxious to help ensure that such abuse was stamped out.
In answer to questions about the kidnap of Margaret Hassan in Iraq, the Prime Minister's Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that we would not be giving a running commentary on what was going on behind the scenes to secure her release other than to say that there was a lot of activity taking place in Baghdad, as you would expect.
