Asked if the Prime Minister would continue on with the tradition of condolences at the start of PMQs, the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) told the lobby that although the Prime Minister had done so yesterday, as it was the first time he had addressed the House, there was not a policy decision on it, but nothing had changed, as far as he was aware.

Asked how the Prime Minister prepared for PMQs, and were there long rehearsals, many officials with him, etc, the PMS replied that obviously, the Prime Minister took PMQs seriously, as it was the opportunity for MPs to question him on any issue of the day. There was a lot going on at the moment, so he had been spending his morning ensuring that he was fully briefed.

Asked if the Prime Minister worked in the Commons or No10, the PMS confirmed that the he had been in No10 this morning.

Asked how did the Prime Minister view David Cameron in advance of their first clash today at PMQs, the PMS said that the question was a party political one, thus would be inappropriate for him to answer as a civil servant.
