Other Business

Asked if there would be further figures on the number of foreign prisoners deported, the PMOS said that we had committed to giving regular updates to Parliament, but it was better that the Home Office decided on the most sensible times to do that. It was in the interests of Parliament and the public that we gave updates at significant points rather trying to keep to a pro forma routine.

Asked for a reaction to Charles Clarke’s criticism of the recent reshuffle, the PMOS said that he didn’t think it was wise to get into the business of commenting on comments. We had explained the reasons behind the reshuffle at the time and had nothing to add to that.

Asked about rumours from Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) that 25,000 police jobs could be lost, the PMOS said that ACPO had already said that story was wrong.
