Geoff Hoon

Asked if it was ever the case that Geoff Hoon’s job was ever a Secretary of State position, the PMOS said that it was not.

Asked if it was a false briefing from the Government, the PMOS said that we had very consistently adopted one line which was that it was the same as Douglas Alexander’s role, and it was a very important role. Geoff Hoon was a very good person to have in that role because of his background as a former MEP.

Asked if it was as a Minister and not as a Secretary of State, did he not have an automatic right to attend Cabinet, the PMOS replied that Geoff Hoon would attend Cabinet in the same way as Douglas Alexander did, and in the same way now that Ian McCartney would.
