Asked what was the Prime Minister’s view on the seriousness of the problem regarding 8 of the most serious foreign offenders still being on the loose, as the head of the IND had told a Select Committee, the PMOS said that there were two issues. One was the issue of dealing with those who were freed and not deported. Measures were in place to track them down as soon as possible, and that work continued. There was also, however, the overall question of changing the system to ensure that we did not end up in the same place again. Work was continuing on that as well. The Prime Minister recognised, as he had said in his speech this morning, that there was frustration at this problem arising. However, as both John Reid and David Normington in a joint statement had made clear, the officials and the Ministers were determined to work together to resolve the issues.
