Asked about the G8 communiqué on climate change, the PMS reminded journalists that firstly she didn’t usually comment on leaked documents and secondly this document had been a draft. We were three weeks away from the G8 meeting. The most important communiqué would come out of that meeting and we should wait for that. Asked about the details of the draft documents, the PMS said there would be many drafts around, that was the nature of a draft document.

Asked if the Government accepted that climate change was happening, the PMS said that everyone agreed that there was a need to tackle climate change. Asked why in that case we were delaying our strategy by six months, the PMS said that we did have the G8 coming up and we were committed to dealing with this problem.
