Welfare Reform

Asked what the time scale for the welfare reform green paper was and the education bill and whether the Education Secretary would be present when the Prime Minister met backbenchers this week, the PMOS said that in terms of meetings they would happen when they happened and we would not give a running commentary on every meeting the Prime Minister had with MPs. In terms of the welfare timetable it was only realistic that a new Secretary of State took a bit longer to come to conclusions and it was right that he was given time to do so. In terms of the education bill he was not aware of any change to the timetable of early next year.
