Asked if the Prime Minister would be voting next week, and also, what was he doing between now and then to win people over to the argument, the PMOS relied that in terms of voting, as he had said this morning, the Prime Minister did regard the ID Cards vote and the Terrorism vote as important matters. In terms of winning people over, the Prime Minister was quite clearly setting out the argument, and he did so at PMQs today.

Asked if the Prime Minister was going to vote on smoking, the PMOS said that as he had said this morning, smoking was a free vote, and traditionally, it was not the PMOS’ position to set out the Prime Minister’s position on free votes, as it was generally a matter for MPs to make up their own minds. Whether the Prime Minister voted on the day was a matter for him.
