Put that Hazel Blears was due to make a statement on regeneration for Manchester, the PMS said that it would be released as a press notice.

Asked if the Prime Minister had written a letter to the British Law Society promising continued funds for groups working for democratic change in Zimbabwe, the PMS said he did not know the answer to that, but would check.

Asked if the drug strategy being announced tomorrow would include the conclusions on the reclassification of Cannabis, the PMS said that we were not expecting the conclusions of the Advisory Committee until later in the spring.

Asked if the Prime Minister was heartened by the decision to bring forward the decision on MP’s expenses to the summer, the PMS said these were matters for the House. As a general rule, the Prime Minister would welcome any moves to greater transparency and he had made his views on that quite clear; the most comprehensive statement of his position was the letter sent to the Speaker setting out the position he would be taking as leader of the Labour party.
