Police Inquiry

Asked if the Prime Minister or any other Downing Street staff members had been re-interviewed by the police in the last few days, the PMOS said that the Prime Minister had not been interviewed. With regards to development s today, today was a simple formality, and the rest was a matter for the CPS.

Asked if the Prime Minister had been interviewed, would journalists have been told, the PMOS replied that on the occasions that the Prime Minister had been interviewed, he had always told journalists.

Asked if £750,000 was money well spent on the inquiry, the PMOS said that this was now a matter for the CPS, and he did not want to say anything which would pre-judge or got ahead of where we were. People should respect the fact that the CPS was going through a process and that process should be allowed to continue.

Asked if we were confirming reports that John McTernan and Jonathan Powell had been told that they would not face prosecution, the PMOS replied that emphatically, we were simply saying that this was now a matter for the CPS and the CPS alone. It was be totally wrong for us to make any comment, let alone a running commentary.
