Asked what the amendments on Monday will involve the PMS said the PM will use the Crime and Courts Bill to table the minimal legislative clauses that are needed to put into place the system of exemplary damages.

Asked what the tone of the call was like the PMS said the tone as per the discussions over the recent weeks was good natured, but clearly on the substance there were still significant differences.

Questioned if there was anything specific that persuaded the PM to hold a press conference earlier on in morning the PMS said there has been a process of cross party talks going on over a number of weeks around the Royal Charter proposal. However it was clear that there were differences and clear that the Government’s legislative programme is being affected by this and the PM believes the right thing to do is for the House to debate and decide the right way forward.
