Asked if the Prime Minister listened to the Bee Gees every day, the PMS said the Prime Minister listened to a wide range of music.

Asked about the extra £200million of funding for the Ministry of Defence and whether it was coming from outside the MoD or from within, the PMS said that as the Treasury had been making clear in response to enquiries, what we were talking about in this case was flexibility within the settlement to make the necessary medium-term changes we needed to make.

Asked what the Prime Minister thought of the decision by Willie Walsh to waive his bonus this year, the PMS said that the Prime Minister thought it was a matter for Willie Walsh.
