Foreign Prisioners-Home Secretary

Asked if the Prime Minister still had full confidence in the Home Secretary, the PMOS said yes. The PMOS said that it might be useful, given some of the reports this morning, to point out that there were actually four agencies involved in this process, not just one. So reports relying on just one source were to some extent misleading. The Four agencies were IND, the Police, Probation and the Prison service and, in many cases, it was the Probation service which took the lead. This was an obvious example of where problems arose when people took information in a drip feed fashion rather than waiting for the full picture. The Home Secretary would make a comprehensive statement this afternoon about some of the most serious cases as he had promised Parliament on Wednesday. It was better that we waited for this overview, and as the Home Secretary had said, he would report back on a regular basis on this ongoing process.
