Lord Browne

Asked if the Prime Minister had expressed any views on the appointment of Lord Browne, the PMS said that it was a Government appointment so clearly the Prime Minister it. Asked if this was another example of giving someone a second chance, the PMS replied that the reason Lord Browne had been appointed to this role was that he had the background and skills to make a difference.

Tackling the deficit would require the Government to look very hard at the way it ran departments and having some external expertise to help us drive that forward would be valuable.

On whether Lord Browne was still heading up the review of university funding, the PMS said he would still carry out that review. Lord Browne would sit on the Cabinet Office board and would be part of the group looking at efficiency across Government. The full time position announced today was the position being taken by Ian Watmore.
