Asked if there was any comment on the Government’s response to the Butler report the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) said that journalists should look at the Foreign Secretary’s Written Ministerial Statement. The Government had accepted all the recommendations from Lord Butler’s report as the Prime Minister had said in his statement last July. The Foreign Secretary had said in November that he had asked Sir David Omand to take forward those recommendations. Today he was publishing how those recommendations had been taken forward. Asked if the report would explain how things were being taken forward the PMS said that journalists should look at the Written Ministerial Statement. We had set out last July that we had accepted the recommendations of Lord Butler and she did not think there would be any surprises in today’s statement.
