Asked if there might be a reshuffle later this evening, the Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) declined to comment on any reshuffle question other than to say that we could all be reasonably relaxed for the rest of the day. Asked if that meant that journalists could go off to parties and not worry, the PMOS said that answer to the first part of the question was yes, if they wanted. He was unable to answer the second part.

Asked if an official announcement had been made confirming reports that Baroness Amos wanted to step down from her post as Leader of the House of Lords, the PMOS said that there had been no announcement. That was not an indication in any way, however, that he recognised the premise of the question. Put to him that Baroness Amos’s wish to step down was ‘common gossip’, the PMOS said that gossip was gossip, fact was fact.
