In response to the suggestion that Paul Wolfowitz had accused Hilary Benn of holding back money because of domestic political leadership reasons, the PMOS said that if journalists looked at the quote it had come from an anonymous source not Paul Wolfowitz. Hilary Benn had last week set out very clearly the reasons why he was taking the steps he had. In response to the suggestion that this highlighted the danger that anything could be viewed in this way now, the PMOS said that we would set out our reasons for decisions and no doubt the press would report those reasons and that would then deal with any confusion that might arise.
