PM’s Holiday

Asked where the Prime Minister was holidaying this summer, the Prime Minister’ Spokesman (PMS) said that he was in Barbados, having arrived there last night. Asked if the Deputy Prime Minister was in charge while the Prime Minister was away, the PMS said that the Deputy Prime Minister would carry out his traditional role over the summer while the Prime Minister was out of the country. As she had been telling journalists for the last five summers, the Prime Minister continued to be the Prime Minister, even while he was abroad. The Deputy Prime Minister would look after things on a day-to-day basis in his absence. Asked for how long the Prime Minister would be away, the PMS said that it wasn’t our policy to comment on the Prime Minister’s travel schedule.
