Regional Visit

Asked if there had been any criticisms of the decision to use a Royal Navy helicopter just to highlight the Prime Minister’s record, the PMOS said that if a person was going round the country you have to chose the best way of doing so. Given the limitations on conventional transport a helicopter was the best way to do it. Also if you look at the actual facts, which the PMOS assumed the reporter would be primarily interested in, seven classrooms built or upgraded on average everyday for ten years, two entirely new schools and ten children’s centres built on average every week, those are figures which you can really only illustrate by going round the country. It is by visiting the various, individual places in the country that you see the actual change on the ground.
