Asked if the Prime Minister had any business in Germany on Saturday, the PMOS said not that he was aware of.

Asked if there was any suggestion that the German police might have over-reacted at the weekend to the hooligans, the PMOS replied that what was important and very welcome was the sensible way in which the German and British police on ground had been working together. They had curtailed what was very much a minority problem, as the majority of the British fans had gone and enjoyed themselves in the proper way.

Asked was it not the Prime Minister’s duty to support England by attending one of the games, the PMOS said that it was the Prime Minister’s duty to support the England team as he did, but to do so in a way that allowed the team to get on with their job.
