Deputy Prime Minister

Asked whether the Prime Minister had seen much of DPMQs, the PMOS said that he thought the Prime Minsiter had sat down for the last the question to the Deputy Prime Minister and then it had moved on to Hilary Armstrong. Asked whether the Prime Minister thought the Deputy Prime Minister’s position was sustainable in such a situation, the PMOS said that the best summary of his view of the Deputy Prime Minister and the value of the role that he played in government was to be found in his appointment letter published today. Asked how often the cabinet committees listed met and lasted, the PMOS said that he did not discuss the operations of cabinet committees. The whole point of them was that they could work behind the scenes and resolve issues, which was best done without a running commentary.
