Police Inquiry

Asked if there were any news, the PMOS said no. Asked if there had been any indication that the police would tell No10 when they have completed their inquiries, the PMOS said it was entirely a matter for the police and the CPS to process what happens.

Asked if there was any understanding that during the period of an election that there would be a criminal moratorium, the PMOS said that there were so many assumptions built into the question that there was no need to address the question.

Asked if there would be a moratorium on police announcements during purdah, the PMOS said that again there was a police investigation, the timing, duration, completion of that police investigation and therefore what is done is entirely a matter for the relevant authorities.

Asked if the normal purdah rules would apply, the PMOS said it was not for him to comment in any way. Asked if there were any purdah rules relating to such an issue, the PMOS said he did not know of any but it was not a matter for Downing Street to have a view on.

Asked if the Prime Minister was likely to engage on the Governments future by putting things on websites, the PMOS said that given that the veil drawn over that question was so thin and it was actually a question about party matters rather than Government matters he would not comment.
