Asked what the Prime Minister would want to do to consult regarding the Education White Paper, the PMOS replied that the important thing was to recognise that the manifesto the Government stood on at the election, did commit to pushing forward reforms in education. That was the foundation stone on which Government policy was built. Of course, that meant that we had to spell out what the White Paper proposed, rather than the myths that surrounded it. It was important that we addressed that, and both the Prime Minister and the Education Secretary would no doubt take the opportunity not only to MPs, but also to a wider audience to explain the true thinking behind the White Paper.

Asked if the Education Bill would now be published in late February or early March and did the Prime Minister have any meetings planned this week with backbenchers regarding education, the PMOS said that in terms of the former, he did not have any information to suggest that it had been delayed. With regards to the latter, the Prime Minister would meet people as and when he had the time.
