Put to him that Alex Salmond had now had a response from the Government on Libya prisoner transfer, but that this had come from the Lord Chancellor not the Prime Minister, and asked why the Prime Minister could not bring himself to make contact with the First Minister, the PMOS replied that it was highly usual for relevant Government Ministers to reply to letters from devolved administrations. It was a matter of almost daily occurrence. Let’s not pretend there was anything unusual in that. Secondly, as had been said before, there was no doubt that there would be communication at the appropriate time on the appropriate issue. But it was right and proper that the appropriate Minister within Government replied to letters.

Asked if there would be contact before the Prime Minister left office, the PMOS replied that this was in hypothetical territory. We addressed issues as and when they happened

This is not a way of contacting the Prime Minister. If you would like to contact the Prime Minister, go to the 10 Downing Street official site.
