Social Exclusion

Asked for further information about the Prime Minister's plans this week, the Prime Minister's Spokesman (PMS) said that this week was about policy planning, and looking at the subjects and issues that were going to be vital over the coming period. The Prime Minister would be working from Chequers, and the seminar he was holding today would be with Ministers, including Hilary Armstrong, Beverley Hughes, Pat McFadden, as well as representatives from social exclusion organisations such as the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, and charities such as Turning Point.

Middle East Trip

Asked if there were any plans for the Prime Minister to make a trip to the Middle East, the PMS replied that we had set out the Prime Minister's intentions to travel to the Middle East. The timing would be based on the progress of the issues moving forward.

Departure Date

Asked if there was any response to Ed Balls' interview regarding the Prime Minister's departure date from No10, the PMS replied that these discussions had all being carried out in the context of a debate about the future of the Labour Party. It would therefore be inappropriate for the PMS to comment on party matters.

Inheritance Tax

Asked what the Prime Minister's view was on inheritance tax, the PMS replied that the question had been asked last week, and people could look at the lobby note to find out.
