Asked if the Prime Minister had spoken to Patrick Mercer with reference to his suggestion that Irish republican dissidents planned to make an attack, the PMS said that he was not aware of any phone call. We were not complacent about these things, but we would not provide a running commentary.

Asked if the Prime Minister thought that taxpayers’ money should be spent on glossy reports on human rights records around the world, the PMS said that it was something that we needed to look at and the Foreign Office had been saying as much; there was no question that we would be providing information on these issues, but in the current financial climate we should look at whether we published it in the most cost-effective way.
