Recess Arrangements

Asked who would be running the Government when the Prime Minister was on holiday, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister would be in charge of the Government over the summer, as would normally be the case. Put that Alastair Darling would be in charge when the Prime Minister was away, the PMS said that the Prime Minister was the Prime Minister and would remain in charge, whether he was on holiday or not. As is normal, there would be senior Cabinet Ministers in London throughout the summer to deal with any day-to-day Government business. But the Prime Minister remained the Prime Minister even when he was on holiday.
