Asked if there was a date for the torture inquiry, the PMS said that reporters would have to wait, but it would be quite soon.

Put that the a backbench MP had refused to see constituents who wore burkas and asked for the Prime Minister’s views, the PMS said that on the issue of burkas the Prime Minister thought it was an issue of personal choice, and that it was important that MPs represented all their constituents effectively.

Asked if the Prime Minister had a view as to whether parents should let their young children cycle to school, the PMS said that he did not want to get into commenting on the actions of particular parents. In general the Prime Minister felt that people should be taking decisions themselves and taking control of their own lives.
