Lady Thatcher

Questioned on Lady Thatcher’s funeral, the Deputy Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (DPMS) said that the Prime Minister had expressed his view earlier in the day about the role that Lady Thatcher had played and the legacy that she left behind. Asked when the government would publish the cost of the funeral, the DPMS said that details would be published in due course.

Asked whether the Prime Minister was relieved there had been no disruption at the funeral, the DPMS said the Prime Minister had made it clear that people had the right to disagree but ultimately we had been mourning the passing of the first woman Prime Minister, who had won three consecutive general elections, and that this had been the right way to mark the occasion.

Questioned on how the Prime Minister thought Lady Thatcher should be commemorated, the DPMS said the issue of memorials was a matter for private individuals and organisations.
