Ministerial Holidays

Asked about the Foreign Secretary going on holiday this weekend, the PMOS said that it was a matter for the Foreign Office to comment on. The PMOS then suggested that it was perhaps worth reminding journalists of the government’s holiday principle. It was right and proper that government ministers took a holiday. Everyone needed to take break at some stage during the year in order to continue to operate effectively. However, the government always ensured that effective cover was arranged at all times. Asked whether this applied to the Deputy Prime Minister, the PMOS said that the arrangments regarding the Deputy Prime Minister had been in place for the past nine years.
