European Commission

Questioned as to whether a final decision on Britain's new European Commissioner had been made, the PMOS said that the position on this issue had not changed since he had been asked the same question yesterday - when he had also said that the position had not changed. Asked if the issue would be debated in Cabinet before an announcement was made, the PMOS said that the Prime Minister would deliberate on the issue and obviously consult with colleagues before coming to a decision. He reminded journalists that we had until the end of July to make an announcement.
