Other Business

Asked if John Prescott was value for money, the PMOS said if you looked at the number of cabinet committees that he chaired and if you looked at what the Prime Minister had said at the time of the last reshuffle, he had set out quite clearly why he believed John Prescott was an important member of the Government.

Asked if the Government’s new Equality and Human Rights Commission might get involved in the Wimbledon equal pay dispute, the PMOS said that when you have just set up a commission it was probably best to let it do its job.

Asked whether the UK would investigate the possibility that the US had been transporting prisoners through the UK, the PMOS said that we complied with international law and had sought assurances that the US complied with international law and those assurances had been given.
