Police Inquiry

Asked if there had been any contact from the Scotland Yard, the PMOS said no. Asked if there was any expectation of the Prime Minister being questioned this week, the PMOS said that was a matter for Scotland Yard. Put there had been more reports that the Police had questioned Jonathan Powell, the PMOS said he would not comment on Civil Servants, temporary or otherwise.

Asked why the PMOS had commented on yesterday’s Evening Standard’s report, the PMOS said the story was about much more than Jonathan Powell. He had merely said he did not recognise the account given. The PMOS said he had responded to further questions by saying that in general terms the article seemed to be a work of fiction. The PMOS said he would not answer questions on individuals. He had not done it when other people had been speculated about in Downing Street and he would not do it in the case of Jonathan Powell. What he had done was to try to indicate that there had been a certain media buzz following earlier announcements elsewhere this week that there might now be some sort of activity in relationship to Downing Street. That was what he did not recognise.
