Asked for the PM’s response to Brendan Barber’s comments on the riots and cuts, the PMS said that a number of actions had been taken since the riots. She added that Ministers understood about the tough times that people are facing, but that it was still important to tackle the deficit, get public spending under control and the economy back on track. The PMS also pointed out that low interest rates, and measures taken in the Budget on fuel duty rises and tax on oil companies, provided some respite for hard pressed families.
