Deputy Prime Minister

Asked if there were any further details on how the Deputy Prime Minister would answer questions in the House of Commons, the PMOS said, as he had in the morning briefing, that because of the creation of two new departments there needed to be a new rota of parliamentary questions. That was currently being looked and the John Prescott would answer questions as the DPM as part of that new arrangement. The Deputy Prime Minister would be accountable to Parliament and answer questions in the House but details were still being worked out.
