There was a discussion on skills and welfare led by Peter Hain and John Denham, in the general context of the long term challenges that need to be met in order to face the future needs of the country and to meet people’s rising aspirations.

Asked if Northern Rock was discussed at Cabinet, the PMS replied that it was not.

Asked if the Counter Terrorism Bill was raised at Cabinet, the PMS replied that again, this was not discussed.

Asked if anything else was discussed, the PMS replied that there was a further discussion on public health protection.

Asked if "British jobs for British workers" was brought up during the discussion on skills, the PMS replied that this issue was not discussed specifically.
