Asked if the Prime Minister was in agreement with the Chancellor over the aspiration to have a non-smoking nation, how many people smoked in No.10 and if the PMS herself was a smoker, the PMS said that she did not answer personal questions, just questions regarding the Prime Minister. In terms of a survey of smokers in Downing Street she had not conducted one before she left for this morning’s briefing. The PMS added that the Prime Minister was committed to reducing the ill health effects of smoking, as reporters would see by the smoking ban in public places which comes in force later this year.
