BNP on Question Time

Asked where the Prime Minister would be when Question Time was broadcast, the PMS said that he would be back in Downing Street.

Asked if the Prime Minister had anything more to say ahead of Question Time tonight, the PMS said that the Prime Minister continued to take the view that he was not afraid of debating anybody and the BNP had to be exposed for what it really was.

The Government supported independence and impartiality in the broadcast media.

Put that there were divergent views within Cabinet regarding BNP on the BBC and that the Prime Minister seemed closer to Jack Straw’s position rather than Peter Hain’s, the PMS said that he would not characterise it as divergent views in Cabinet, as there had not been a discussion on this at Cabinet; it was merely the case that Jack Straw was appearing on Question Time and Peter Hain had said he did not think that the BBC should let the BNP on air.
