Asked about Israeli spokesman comments suggesting that they were not coming in February to a peace conference the Prime Minister's Spokesman (PMS) said that we were not aware that anybody had announced a conference in February. We were looking to the Palestinian elections next month then we would see where we were.

Law Lords

Asked what the Government's stance was now that people had had more time to digest the Law Lords decision the PMS said that yesterday's statement had set out the Government's position. We would be studying the Law Lords decision carefully to see whether was possible to take into account the concerns they expressed when we bring forward legislation to Parliament. Asked if the statement also took into account the Select Committee on Human Rights recommendation that evidential changes on taping were absolutely essential and if they were in place you would not have to omit them when it went to trial the PMS said that the statement did not refer to those points directly.
