Asked if electoral reforms would be published this week, the PMS said that he would have to check on that.

Asked whether the Prime Minister had any views on the Information Committee’s ruling on MP’s spending, the PMS said that the Prime Minister thought that these were matters for the House authorities. Put that he’d been called to be compliant, the PMS said that the Prime Minister had not been called upon to do anything. The Freedom of Information request was made to the House authorities and the Information Commissioner’s view, which had been expressed today, related to the House authorities, not to individual MP’s.

Asked whether there would be a Capital Gains Tax announcement on Thursday, the PMS said people would have to wait and see. When the Treasury were in a position to make an announcement, they would make it.

Asked if the Prime Minister had been able to get any sleep since getting back from India and China, the PMS told the journalist in question that it was very kind of him to ask after the Prime Minister’s welfare and he did manage to get some sleep on the way back and on his return to Downing Street.
