Asked if the Prime Minister agreed with the characterisation of the Warwick Report, of a "cave-in" by the Government to the unions, the PMS replied that this was a slightly odd story in one of the papers this morning, defining it in that way, and previously defining it in a different way. Obviously this was a Labour Party matter and not one for him to comment on directly. But looking at some of the proposals, the Government had already made a commitment to greater flexible working, and to extending the minimum wage from 22 to 21, for example.
