Lord Mayor’s Banquet Speech

Asked if there was a final text of the speech yet, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that the Prime Minister was still working on it. However the general theme would be that he would start off with globalisation in general then move to dealing with it in terms of terror and climate change. But the bulk of the speech would be devoted to trade and how the Doha round was in many ways a test of our determination and ability to make globalisation work. The Prime Minister would be on his feet at 2045 to deliver his speech and it was best of people waited till then for the detail.

Asked if there was more than had been briefed already to the Guardian, the PMOS said that his sense was that there would be more in the speech but as he left the office it was still being finished. Asked if the Prime Minster would have anything to say on the European budget negotiations, the PMOS said that he did not think it would deal specifically with that. It would be very much through a World Trade Organisation (WTO) angle.
