Asked to explain why the Cabinet Secretary had asked for sections of Lance Price’s memoirs to be changed, the PMOS said that these matters were dealt with by the Cabinet Office and therefore it was a matter for them. Asked if the Prime Minister had asked the Cabinet Secretary to intervene, the PMOS said that the Cabinet Secretary fulfilled his official function. These matters were not commented on by the PMOS as they were a matter for the Cabinet Secretary and the Cabinet Office. The Prime Minister, like himself, did not give book reviews.
