Video Conferencing

Asked if there was a view in Government for Ministers to use video conferencing more, rather than flying around the world for meetings, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that video conferencing was used, not least in terms of the Prime Minister’s regular conversations with President Bush. There were, however, occasions when face to face contact was necessary, and therefore, as people knew, Ministerial travel was now offset and that was an important development. There was no part of the Government’s message which said that people should stop using aeroplanes. The important thing was that within Europe, we worked towards an EU trading scheme, with emissions being included. That was what we were supporting.

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.
