Public Spending

Asked if there had been a shift of emphasis today from the Prime Minister on public spending, the PMS said that the Prime Minister had been setting out the overall position on the Government s approach to the economic downturn, which was that we needed to continue to invest in the kind of new technologies and jobs that would enable us to recover as quickly as possible from the recession.

Put that the Prime Minister seemed to suggest that further investment was dependent on continued growth, the PMS said that the Prime Minister made clear that one of the Government s priorities remained taking the necessary steps to ensure that conditions were right for growth.

Asked if the Prime Minister had been attempting to say that there would be enough growth so as the Government wouldn t have to make public spending cuts, the PMS said that the Prime Minister had simply emphasised the fact that we needed to ensure that the action we took enabled us to recover from the recession and grow as strongly as possible in the years ahead.
