MOD Letter

Asked if the Prime Minister was concerned that a senior official at the MOD thought that the SDSR process had badly damaged morale at the department, the PMS said that this was in reference to a story in the Telegraph and the Defence Secretary had responded to that.

The PMS added that the Defence Secretary had made clear that a junior official had drafted the document and not a senior one. The document had not been authorised or requested and it had not been seen by any MOD Minister. The Defence Secretary had also made the point that he did not agree with the document’s conclusions.

Asked if the Prime Minister agreed with the Defence Secretary, the PMS said that he did.
