EU Council

Asked whether the Prime Minister will publish Dominic Grieve?s views on the United Kingdom and the European Court of Human Rights, the PMS said there were clear rules regarding disclosure of government papers. However, if the question related to what might be in the Conservative Manifesto, the PMS referred journalists to political colleagues. The PMS added that the Prime Minister was already looking at a variety of measures eg the deportation of foreign national offenders.

Asked who initiated the ?high 5?, the PMS said it was not unusual for Mr Juncker to greet people in this way and pointed out that the Prime Minister and Mr Juncker had worked closely around the EU Council table when Mr Juncker was Prime Minister of Luxembourg. Asked about the introduction of Lord Hill at the EU Council meeting, the PMS said this had been amicable and that the Prime Minister?s view on a preference for an economic portfolio was already known.
