The Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) started by telling journalists that Cabinet had met this morning for just over an hour. David Miliband gave an update on Zimbabwe and Des Browne gave an update on Kosovo. They spent most of Cabinet discussing the Government’s future legislative programme.

Asked for more information on what was said at Cabinet about Zimbabwe and the future legislative programme, the PMS replied that it had been a general discussion about the Government’s future legislative priorities, so there was not much more to be said on that at this point. The discussion on Zimbabwe had been more of an update on the situation and particularly focused on the need to keep up the international pressure on Mr Mugabe and, as journalists knew, there would be a discussion in the UN Security Council on Zimbabwe today.

Asked if the issue of 42 days had come up as part of the discussion on the Government’s future legislative priorities, the PMS said it had not as it had been a discussion on the priorities for the next Queen’s Speech.
