Asked if the Prime Minister would be discussing the "blue on blue" incident during his meeting with General Petraeus, the PMOS replied that he trusted Lobby were aware of the latest statement from the US that they believed that they could now make this material available to the inquest. It would probably come up in the meeting in some form, but in this context.
Asked if the Prime Minister had a view on the Corporate Manslaughter Bill, the PMOS replied that as the Prime Minister said in the Liaison Committee hearing earlier today, this was a matter which the Home Secretary had said needed to be considered further.

Put to him that during the Prime Minister's appearance this morning, he started to talk about the Chancellor when asked about his successor, and was this deliberate, the PMOS replied that without making a big deal out of this, people were eliding several points into one. People should go back to what the Prime Minister said at his press conference, which was that he would not say any more about this at this moment.
