Terror Bill

Asked if the Prime Minister intended to take the same attitude with other White Papers and Bills that were coming up soon, i.e, uncompromising, and also was the Prime Minister going to let Charles Clarke "take the rap", the PMOS replied that the Prime Minister in no way could be seen to say that he was letting the Home Secretary "take the rap".
