Asked if Lord Malloch-Brown spoke for the Government when he said we were not in favour of Robert Mugabe having even a ceremonial honorary title in any future power-sharing government, the PMS said that Lord Malloch-Brown was the Minister for Africa so of course he spoke on behalf of the Government.

Asked about US Secretary of the Treasury’s visit to London, the PMS said that Mr Paulson would be in London tomorrow and Thursday and that both the Prime Minister and the Chancellor would want to take this opportunity to discuss global economic situations with him.

Asked if the Prime Minister had a response to Ken Clarke’s proposals to solve the West Lothian problem, the PMS said that Jack Straw had given a political response on behalf of the Labour Party.

Asked if the Prime Minister would be giving a statement on Iraq next week, the PMS said not necessarily, but that it could be expected before recess.
