Deputy Prime Minister

In response to further questions, Mr Straw said he would not speculate on any position, disposition or P45 that might await any Minister on June 27. He referred to the answer he had given earlier to Sir Nicholas Winterton MP, when he asked him for an assurance that he would carry on serving as Leader of the House: "I cannot give him that assurance because, like lunatics in prison in days of old, Ministers of the Crown serve entirely at Her Majesty’s pleasure and we have no idea when that pleasure is going to come to an end."
