Salman Rushdie

Asked if we had had any contact with the Pakistanis regarding Salman Rushdie’s knighthood, the PMOS said not that he was aware of.

Asked how the Prime Minister had reacted to a member of the Government effectively saying that this justified retaliation by giving Salman Rushdie a knighthood, the PMOS replied that he was not going to get drawn into it, as it was best left to the proper diplomatic channels.

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.
