International Monetary Fund

Asked if the Prime Minister was happy with the apparent choice of Dominique Strauss-Kahn as the next head of the IMF, the PMS replied that our position was that we would like to see an open and transparent process. That was the position adopted by the board yesterday. As regards to what was happening at ECOFIN, it was best that journalists speak to the Treasury who were on the ground and better placed to provide an update on the situation.

Put that yesterday we said it was "very early days" to be talking about this, and asked if this was still the case, the PMS replied that our position was that we would like to see an open process, and we agreed with the statement put out by the IMF board last night. But for the latest on the ground developments, it was best to check with the Treasury.
