Asked if the PM still thinks it is sensible to ring fence some budgets the PMS said that the PM’s view is the one set out in the Autumn statement and that it remains unchanged.

Asked if the Government should change course to compete in the global race the PMS said that the PM set out his views during his speech last week where he underlined the importance to stick the course.

Asked if the PM found it helpful for Ministers to have a public debate on the budget the PMS said difficult decisions are needed to be made and that is it is expected that Ministers will argue the case for their own departmental budgets.

Asked what the PM’s view was on the interventions from Liam Fox and the Church of England the PMS said that Government receives many budget representations but will be sticking to the course as outlined in the PM’s speech.
