Liaison Select Committee

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.

Asked for a reaction to the suggestion, first by Nigel Lawson, and now from the Conservative front bench, that the new job for Mr Challon was an abuse of patronage, the PMOS replied that this was entirely a party matter. Put to him that this was a Government appointment, the PMOS replied that these matters would therefore be dealt with by the department.

Asked for a comment about the idea that people undertaking community work following criminal prosecution should wear a uniform, the PMOS replied that these were matters that were being considered by the department and they would come forward with proposals in due course.
