Swine Flu

Asked about the advice the Government gave out about swine flu at the weekend, the PMS said that Andy Burnham had been on the radio this morning setting out the Government s position and would make a Statement to the House of Commons this afternoon.

Asked about the National Childbirth Trust s advice to pregnant mothers about swine flu, the PMS said that the Prime Minister felt that people should follow the view of medical experts and the Government s Chief Medical Officer, which Andy Burnham had been setting out this morning.

Asked what commonsense adjustments the Prime Minister had made to his living arrangements to prevent his family from catching swine flu, the PMS said that he was not going to comment on the Prime Minister s individual living arrangements, but it was right that everybody took precautions at this time in line with the official guidance.

Asked if the Brown family was carrying on as normal, the PMS said that the Brown family were continuing to go about their business as normal, but the key thing was that everybody took advice, dependant on their own specific circumstances.
