The PMS was asked whether the Prime Minister thought it was appropriate for the Business Secretary to joke about bankers. He replied that it was just that a joke.

Asked what the Prime Minister’s reaction was to the union response that the new employment tribunal regulations were a sackers’ charter , the PMS replied that it was in fact a hirers’ charter and that the Government was removing regulation and thereby making it easier for small businesses to take on people. The amount of red tape caused by employment law was a major issue for small businesses and discouraged them from employing people. This would ensure that more people were recruited.
