Derek Scott

Asked why the Cabinet Secretary, Sir Andrew Turnbull, hadn’t made a statement on Derek Scott’s book yesterday, the PMS said she hadn’t been aware that he had been intending to make one. Put to her that the Treasury had seemed to think that the Cabinet Secretary would be saying some words, the PMS said that she wasn’t aware of any statement. As she had told journalists yesterday, Sir Andrew was following the correct process relating to books written by any former ministers, officials or advisers, and the Cabinet Office were able to discuss that process if journalists wished.

Asked to describe the working relationship between the Prime Minister and the Chancellor at the moment, the PMS said that the Prime Minister and the Chancellor were working towards the CSR and were working very well together, as you would expect. Asked if there had “been any tantrums lately”, the PMS said that she had nothing further to add to what she had said about this issue yesterday.
