Tony Blair

Asked if the Prime Minister was informed in advance of the former Prime Minister taking the job in a bank, the PMS replied that the Prime Minister was not informed by the Committee in advance, along with normal convention. And he was not involved in the Cabinet Office process, and independent process – the normal convention when it comes to serving Prime Ministers in relation to jobs taken by ex-Prime Ministers.

Asked if the Prime Minister was informed by the ex-Prime Minister, the PMS replied that he did not know the answer to this.

Asked how often the Prime Minister spoke to Tony Blair, and how often did they speak, the PMS replied that he did not want to go into the detail, but they spoke on a regular basis, not least because of the very good work Mr Blair was doing in relation to the Middle East Peace Process.
