Public Services

Asked if the Prime Minister had been surprised to hear the Education Secretary referring to ‘differences of emphasis’ in Cabinet regarding how to approach public service reform, the PMOS said that the Cabinet recognised the progress which had been made in education and other public services and was determined, collectively, to build on it. Asked if it was correct to say that differences of opinion on the role of LEAs were between the Deputy Prime Minister and the Education Secretary, the PMOS said that he had no intention of getting drawn into a discussion about this matter. The important point was that Cabinet was agreed on the principle of investment and reform.
