Dunfermline by-election

Asked whether in terms of the Government, the by-election result sent a signal that the voters were in some way unhappy with the Government’s performance in the last eight months since the election, The PMOS said that he did not want to get into analysing what were essentially Party matters. The best place to look in terms of the Government’s response would be the Prime Minister’s speech later today. What people would hear in that was that the Prime Minister’s view that what the electorate had voted him to do was what he would continue to do, which was carry out the Government’s programme.

Asked how the Prime Minister reacted to last night’s news, the PMOS replied that again, the best place to see that would be in the Prime Minister’s speech, and people would see that the basic message was that he knew what the electorate had voted him in to do, and he would continue to do that.

Asked if there were any ramifications from last night’s vote for the higher echelons of Government, the PMOS replied the question crossed over into Party politics.
