Asked if the Prime Minister, the Government or the Cabinet Secretary had taken any legal steps at this stage, the PMS replied not as far as he knew but that these were matters relating to the Labour Party.

Asked if was the Prime Minister’s view that it was best if he knew nothing of party funding so as to never be compromised by it or if he needed to keep a very close eye on it, the PMS said that if that was a question about how the Prime Minister managed his relationship with the Labour Party then it was a political question and best directed to the party.

Asked how important it was for the Prime Minister to clean up politics, the PMS said that the Prime Minister had spoken in length about this on Monday and yesterday at Prime Minister’s Questions and there was nothing more he could usefully add.

Asked if it was correct that there was a revised Ministerial Code, the PMS said that we had made some revisions to the Ministerial Code in July.

Put that if someone was involved in an alleged breach of that code then the Cabinet Secretary would trigger the procedures regarding breaches, the PMS said that that was correct.
