Workers’ Hours

Asked if it was the Government’s position that they were happy to have a cap on British workers’ hours not exceeding 65, the PMOS said that this was a matter that was of continuing discussion. The report in the Guardian that said that there was a decision yesterday was not correct. There was no question of a decision being taken, or a date being set, and there was a good of support in Europe for retaining the opt-out. The PMOS said that those discussions were continuing, and we would continue to work on this to the end of our Presidency.

Put that the DTI had said that we supported a cap of 65 hours, the PMOS replied that he was not going to get into negotiation terms. The position was there, but in terms of the story this morning, it was wrong.
