Asked what the Prime Minister's speech in Davos would cover, the Prime Minister's Official Spokesman (PMOS) replied that there were 3 big issues at Davos, climate change, Africa and trade. These were familiar issues and could be directly linked to Gleneagles and through to the German Presidency of the EU. The Prime Minister would be giving the last speech at Davos this year, which traditionally gave an overview of global affairs.
Asked if Catholic adoption agencies only placed children with Catholic couples, the PMOS replied that it was his understanding that this was not the case but advised the journalist to speak to the Catholic agencies.
Asked for information about the Home Secretary's plans to use a military camp in the north of England, the PMOS replied that he did not have any further details and referred the journalist to the Home Office.
Put that recently, people in Spain had banned size "zero" fashion models, and the British Fashion Council had said today that they were not going to do the same here, and did the Prime Minister think that the fashion industry was taking the right approach, the PMOS said that he had to admit that the subject had passed him by, and it was not on his specialist subject list!
