Derek Scott

Asked for a reaction to Derek Scott’s comment on the Today Programme this morning that he wouldn’t bet his house on there being no tax rises in the next Parliament, the PMOS replied that the Chancellor had said all there was to say about the issue this morning. The CSR highlighted the Government’s commitment to stability and sustainable investment in our public services – the key word here being ‘sustainable’.

Asked to comment on Mr Scott’s comparison of the Treasury to the Mafia, the PMOS said that as his colleague had told journalists at a press briefing two weeks ago, we had no intention of doing or saying anything which might help promote Mr Scott’s book.
