Put that the Spectator had reported that before the Prime Minister went on his trip, he and the Chancellor had met to discuss the succession, and it claimed they had agreed dates, that they had discussed the process of how the transfer might take place, and was this true, the PMOS asked which detailed source did the Spectator quote for this?

The journalist replied that it was an un-named source, as the PMOS would not be surprised to learn. The PMOS replied that he would not dignify it with a comment.

Asked if it could be inferred from that that it was a non-denial denial, the PMOS replied that he had nothing that in any way suggested that any of it was true, but also, that he would not contribute to the Spectator publicity machine.

Asked if the PMOS was saying that he did not know, i.e. that it might be true, but he did not know if it was, the PMOS replied: no, what he was saying was that it was not worthy of comment. Whenever the Spectator produced some evidence of this, then perhaps it would be worthy of comment, but they had produced absolutely none.
