David Cameron’s Speech

Asked if the Prime Minister would be watching David Cameron's speech at the Conservative Party Conference this afternoon, the Prime Minister's Official Spokesman (PMOS) replied that the Prime Minister had various meetings this afternoon, but no doubt he would be updated by those on the political side of the House.

Northern Ireland/ International Monitoring Commission (IMC) Report

Asked what would the Prime Minister be saying about the IMC report, the PMOS said that the Prime Minister would first of all recognise the objective way in which the IMC had gone about its business, and the fact that this was an objective assessment by an independent body. The Prime Minister would also recognise what the report said about the IRA having dismantled its capability in certain key respects: it was no longer engaged in activities such as terrorism, training, recruitment, targeting, and the procurement and engineering of weapons, and that it had stopped community punishments and other such activities as well. Therefore, the Prime Minister would welcome the fact that the IMC's conclusion were that the IRA and Sinn Fein were both living up to their commitments to follow an exclusively political path. The Prime Minister would no doubt find his own form of words to express this, but that would be the basic context of what he would say.
