BBC Breakfast

Asked what meetings the Prime Minister had been carrying out this morning at around 8am when he had been invited onto BBC Breakfast, the PMS said that the Prime Minister had been doing quite a lot of media recently and that this morning he had had a breakfast meeting with representatives of creative industries. He went on to say that a full cast list of that meeting could be sent to journalists. This was a sector of the economy that the Prime Minister attached importance too because they represented a significant future growth area for the British economy and prosperity in jobs.

Put that when Harriet Harman had been asked this morning why she was appearing on BBC Breakfast rather than the Prime Minister she had said it was because the Prime Minister was meeting other Ministers, the PMS said that there were Ministers at the meeting as well and that a cast list would be made available. The PMS went on to say that last time he checked the Prime Minister was accountable to Parliament and not to individual TV programmes, but it was always good to have an opportunity to clarify that.
