Asked if the Prime Minister had changed his view about Guantanamo being an anomaly to closing it down, the PMOS replied that the Prime Minister had always said it should be an anomaly which should be dealt with sooner rather than later. The Prime Minister had equally recognised the circumstances under which it was set up.

Asked if the Prime Minister had found it helpful that so many MPs were involving themselves in trying to persuade the American Government to change its stance on extradition, and had he spoken to President Bush about it, the PMOS said that the presumption behind the question was that in some way, this was an issue which we had not been discussing with the US Administration. That presumption was wrong. We had been discussing it on a regular basis, and we continued to do so, and we had also made our views known to Congress on a regular basis as well.

Asked if the Prime Minister had formal representation from the CBI, the PMOS said he was not aware of any.
