Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross

Asked if there would be any more comment from the Prime Minister on the issue, the Prime Minister s Spokesman (PMS) told the assembled press that the Prime Minister s view, not that he had had an enormous amount of time to consider this in the light of everything else that was going on, was as expressed in the statement released yesterday afternoon.

Put that there would be no Government activity in the matter, the PMS replied that as the Prime Minister had said yesterday, Ofcom said they would be investigating the matter and it was for the BBC, the BBC Trust and Ofcom to take any appropriate action. Asked whether the Prime Minister had heard the broadcast, the PMS said he would not be going into internal processes. We had been asked repeatedly during the course of yesterday for the Prime Minister s view, so the Prime Minister had given his view.

This was clearly a matter that had attracted a significant amount of public controversy and that was why the Prime Minister thought it was appropriate for him to express a view. The Prime Minister was spending the overwhelming majority of his time dealing with the international economic situation and he was in Paris yesterday for meetings with President Sarkozy.
