Rupert Murdoch

Asked about the Freedom of Information request about Prime Ministerial meetings with Rupert Murdoch, the PMOS said that the FOI Commissioner had said that we should publish the dates of official conversations, as defined by the Commissioner, and those could now be found on the Cabinet Office web site. Asked what official conversations meant, the PMOS said it meant conversations that were not political or personal. In other words where official business was discussed. Asked who adjudicated that, the PMOS said it was where official business was discussed or where contacts were otherwise clearly official in nature. Asked what official business was, the PMOS said that the Commissioner had said that there was not a need to reveal the content of conversations.

This is not a way of contacting the Prime Minister. If you would like to contact the Prime Minister, go to the 10 Downing Street official site.
