Asked for the terms of reference for the inquiry, the PMS advised to speak to Cabinet Office for detail, but that the PM was clear on the weekend that Alex Allen will be looking at loose ends, because he is happy with the explanation Baroness Warsi gave. She apologised for the mistakes she made, but clearly a mistake has been made so therefore Alex Allen has been asked to look into whether a breach of the Ministerial code has occurred. Asked what sort of loose ends will be looked at, she said those relating to the specific issue of Baroness Warsi on her trip to Pakistan. Asked what kind of referral this is, she said, as the PM said when asked yesterday, he is very happy with Baroness Warsi’s explanation and she has fully apologised for the mistake she has made. But he thinks it is right for Alex Allen to have a look at any loose ends that needs to be picked up, and it’s no more than that. Baroness Warsi was clear and set out in her letter to the PM what her mistake was and has apologised for that. Asked if she has been referred, the PMS reiterated that the PM has asked Alex Allen to look into this to see if there are any loose ends to look at around this specific issue regarding Baroness Warsi. Asked if Sir Alex Allan will be given a desk, she said she does not know specifically about the arrangements and advised people to speak to the Cabinet Office. Asked if the work is underway, she confirmed that it was.
