Education White Paper

Asked what could be made of the interpretation from the Prime Minister’s words at PMQs that he had agreed to implement the Education White Paper in full, the PMOS replied that one should be wary of over-interpretation.

Asked further on the Education White Paper details, the PMOS said he was not going to get drawn into a hypothetical exercise in responding to Select Committee reports that was not even out yet. The Prime Minister had said what he had said in the White Paper, and people should wait and see what the Select Committee had to say, and go from there.

Asked if the Prime Minister would see that he would like to "meet the mood" of the House by making some compromises, the PMOS said again that people should wait and see what the Select Committee report said.

Asked if it was true that the Prime Minister’s mood had "hardened" over recent days, the PMOS replied that the Prime Minister had stated his mood very clearly on Monday, and that was where he was at.
