AV referendum

Asked for the Prime Minister’s thoughts on the AV vote, the PMS said that the political reform programme was important and we were committed to seeing it through.

Asked if the Prime Minister would vote, the PMS said yes.

Asked if the Prime Minister was confident of getting the bill through the Commons and the Lords before the end of the year, the PMS said that this was an important government bill and it was our intention to see it enacted and proceed with the referendum on the date we had set out.

Asked if the Prime Minister was breaking the end of his paternity leave tonight to vote because he was worried the vote would be close, the PMS said no; it was a reasonably short trip to make the vote.
