Butler Inquiry

Asked if the Prime Minister had had any input into the decision by the Butler Inquiry to publish their report to him on 14 July, the PMOS said that it was up to the Inquiry team to announce the date. Asked if the decision had been made in consultation with Downing Street, the PMOS repeated that any date was for the Inquiry. Asked if it was fair to speculate that it would be ‘less than helpful’ to publish the report the day before two by-elections were due to be held, the PMOS said that as a Civil Servant he was unable to comment on party political matters. Suffice to say that we were relaxed about the date. End of story.
