Asked when the Prime Minister had been told about a plot concerning Leo Blair, the PMOS said we did not talk about security matters, and that this story illustrated precisely why we were wise not to talk about security matters.
Asked to comment on the story on page 4 of The Times about sex offenders, the PMOS replied that rather than relying on reports in The Times, instead, people should wait for the full report from Ruth Kelly tomorrow.
Asked for further timings on the Education Bill, the PMOS said that it would be published in February, and would be put to the vote sometime in March.
