(European Commission President)

Asked about the Irish Presidency’s decision to hold another Summit to discuss nominations for the job of European Commission President, the PMOS said that as he understood it, it would only take place if there was a consensus as to who the new Commission President should be. Asked if the UK would be putting forward any names, the PMOS said that it was up to the Taoiseach to decide where the consensus was. Discussions about this issue were continuing to take place among all twenty-five EU members.

Asked if the Prime Minister had watched last night’s England v Croatia match, the PMOS said yes. He was obviously delighted at the result. No doubt he would be anxious, like the rest of the country, to see the outcome of Thursday night’s game against Portugal.
