Asked if the Prime Minister had had any more contact with any leaders regarding Zimbabwe, the PMS said that there was nothing more to add; as the Prime Minister had said in his press conference this morning, he would be speaking to the Head of the African Union later on today. We were still awaiting the formal announcement of the election result from the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission.

Asked if the Prime Minister had a message for teachers regarding the problem of teachers walking out, the PMS said that the Prime Minister had a huge amount of respect for the work that teachers did but it was important that we maintained discipline in public finances and that we continued to maintain a disciplined approach to inflation; that was what had enabled the Bank of England, unlike European Central Bank for example, to cut interest rates twice in recent months.

Asked who would be taking the place of the Prime Minister at Prime Minister’s Questions tomorrow, the PMS replied that it would be Harriet Harman.

This is not a way of contacting the Prime Minister. If you would like to contact the Prime Minister, go to the 10 Downing Street official site.
