Prime Minister’s Trip to India
Asked who decided that the Prime Minister should stay in a hotel that had a butler, the PMS said that accommodation was chosen on both financial and practical considerations. The Prime Minister had said this morning that he wasn’t aware of such a service, but we understood it was the normal practice of the hotel to provide support staff to their visitors.
Asked about staff at Chequers, the PMS said that Chequers was owned by a trust and we wouldn’t go into detail of staff arrangements.
