Asked about the Guardian report on reclassifying cannabis, the PM replied that he was not a spokesman for ACPO, people should speak to them to see whether their position had been accurately represented on the front page of the Guardian this morning. All he would say was that as ACPO had been saying, they stood by the recommendation that they made to the Advisory Council on the misuse of drugs that cannabis should be restored to the category of a class B drug.

Put that the point of the piece this morning was that if the police were not going to act on a reclassification, then surely there was no point in it, the PMS replied that as he said, it was probably best to speak to ACPO to see whether or not that was an accurate description.

Asked if he suspected that this was not the case, the PMS replied that it was best to speak to them, he was not a spokesman for ACPO.
