Respect Action Plan

Asked if the speech tomorrow was the main event, the PMOS said that the plan rolled together the work of seven Whitehall departments and would see sixteen Ministers travelling around the UK highlighting new policies. Asked whether there would be new policy announced, the PMOS said there would be genuine developments and people should judge them tomorrow. There would be new policy and measures that had pulled together work from seven departments.

If anyone had any idea how challenging that was it would speak for itself. Asked if it was true that Whitehall departments had been reluctant to contribute money to the respect action plan, the PMOS said that the Home Office had put out a statement on Saturday night responding to and correcting the News of the World story. It was wrong. We would set out tomorrow how it would be funded. Asked why it was described as an action plan, the PMOS said it was because we were bringing together the work of seven different departments and therefore many of these things were not about legislating but did need actual practice.
