Scottish Elections

Asked if the Prime Minister was concerned by the "shambles and chaos" of the Scottish elections, the Prime Minister's Spokesman (PMS) replied that this was obviously a serious matter, and we shared the public's concern about the reported problems. These were devolved matters and the independent Electoral Commission would be undertaking a review into the conduct of the election, working with the Scottish Executive. It was important that we wait for the outcome of the review.

Prime Minister

Asked if we recognised the FT story about the Prime Minister getting a top European job after he stepped down, the PMS replied that the range of stories in this morning's papers illustrated perfectly what we had always known, that there would be a great deal of speculation over the Prime Minister's future at this time. The reality was, as we had said yesterday, decisions were yet to be made - and that remained the case today.

Rubbish Collections

Asked that given the current unpopularity of fortnightly bin collections, would the Government be advising local authorities on this issue, the PMS replied that as we had said before, this was a matter for local authorities.
