Asked what was discussed at the Prime Minister’s meeting with the Aga Khan, the PMS said that they had discussed the cooperation between the Government and the Aga Khan Development Network, which supported projects in health, education, poverty alleviation, peace and stability. The Prime Minister had also congratulated the Aga Khan on his golden jubilee.

Asked when the Prime Minister would make his statement about Iraq, the PMS said it could be expected before recess.

Put that the Lord Chief Justice was giving a speech tonight and asked for a reminder as to what the Prime Minister’s thoughts on the Archbishop of Canterbury’s comments on Sharia Law had been, the PMS said that he was slightly reluctant to wade into a Lord Chief Justice story without knowing the contents of the speech he was giving. On the general issue of Sharia Law, we had made our position very clear at the time, which was that British law should be based on British values and determined by the British Parliament.
