“Your Freedom” Website

Asked whether the Prime Minister had views either on the restitution of the death penalty or whether people should be able to marry horses, as contributors had suggested on the new website, the PMS replied that he thought that the process should continue and we would be responding to it in due course.

Asked if he would rule out either of those two suggestions, the PMS said that he wouldn’t want to make any precipitous comments on issues raised by the public.

The PMS said he would not comment on this on a daily basis; there should be a proper process and the Government would respond after that was completed.

Put that there would be duplications of these suggestions on the No10 epetitions site, the PMS said that the point of this was the Government engaging with the public and using the internet was an efficient way of doing that.

On how the Government would decide which views to listen to, the PMS said that we would want to look at the weight of public opinion, but also the merits of the individual proposals.
