Asked if David Miliband was for or against empowering the state, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) replied that David Miliband was for empowering.

Asked if we were "burying bad news" by putting two controversial items on the same morning, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman said: no. If the journalist was referring to the report on Sex Offenders, that was when we were able to put the report together. It was important that did it as soon as possible.

Asked if cannabis was likely to be buried as a result of the Sex Offenders report coming out on the same morning, the PMOS said it would better to find out whether there was going to be a report on cannabis tomorrow. People should talk to the Home Office.

Asked why there was going to be a review tomorrow on cannabis, the PMOS said there had been a review going on, but whether the announcement would be tomorrow or not, it was a matter for the Home Office to decide.
