Michael Gove

Asked if the Prime Minister had confidence in Michael Gove, the PMS said yes.

Asked if the Prime Minister thought Michael Gove mishandled the announcement on Building Schools for the Future (BSF), the PMS said that there were mistakes made and Mr Gove had apologised for those mistakes yesterday.

Asked if there was any thought about abandoning the plans to scrap BSF projects, the PMS said no; the statement that the Secretary of State made at the beginning of the week still stood. There were problems with this programme and the financial environment was very tight at the moment.
