Tessa Jowell

Asked why Tessa Jowell had not used a blind trust instead of a hedge fund to avoid a conflict of interest, the Prime Ministers' Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that he would not get drawn into a speculative discussion about this issue. It had been done the way it had and Tessa Jowell had explained the circumstances in her statement. Asked whether the Prime Minister was happy that Tessa Jowell had not declared the Centurion investment, the PMOS said that Tessa Jowell had set out her explanation in her statement. Sir Gus O'Donnell had established the facts and the Prime Minister had set out his view in his statement. Asked whether we accepted that she had an interest in other investments, the PMOS said no. What he had said was that Tessa Jowell had set out the position in her statement and he had nothing further to add.
