Charles Clarke

Asked what the Prime Minister thought about Charles Clarke’s comments that what was needed was a mini-Budget, the PMS said that the Prime Minister thought that all these matters were for the Chancellor to consider. In relation to 10p, the Chancellor had set out the position of the Government in his letter to the treasury Select Committee on the 23rd April and that remained the position.

Asked to comment on Charles Clarke’s criticism of British jobs for British workers, the PMS said that he would not get into every specific comment made by every backbench MP. However, in relation to British jobs for British workers, the PMS said it was clear that when the Prime Minister used the phrase, he was referring to the Government’s local employment partnerships, which were about getting Job Centre Plus to work more closely with local employers to enable people who go through the Job Centre Plus system to be employed more by local employers.
