The Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS) began by telling the assembled press that Cabinet had met that morning for about an hour. There was an update by Jack Straw on prisons, covering the prison-building programme and prison reform including tackling re-offending. Jacqui Smith gave an update on neighbourhood policing and John Denham gave an update on skills.

Asked if there was any kind of pep talk from the Prime Minister to his new Cabinet colleagues at Cabinet, the PMS said that the only time the issue had come up was when the Prime Minister had said that notwithstanding the political funding issues the Government had faced in recent times, the Government had made significant announcements in relation to health, energy, skills, the economy and we must continue to push ahead with the reform agenda in the weeks and months ahead.
