Asked what the Prime Minister thought about his predecessor’s new unpaid advisory role to the Rwandan Government, the PMS replied that she was aware of the reports of Tony Blair’s appointment, but she had not had official confirmation of those reports and would not be making any further comment.

Put that the Capital Gains Tax new regime was going to be announced next Thursday, the PMS replied that she would not speculate on timing.

Asked about MP’s pay and would it be a free vote, the PMS said that with regards to the existing proposals that the Government was putting forward in response to the SSRB, it was Parliamentary business, but the Prime Minister had set out very strongly the view of Government on this. In terms of specific whipping arrangements the PMS referred people to the Whips office.
