Asked if the Prime Minister agreed with Richard Dannatt s comments that there was no cheap option for Defence, the PMS said that the Government s actions in recent months demonstrated that we would make the proper investment to ensure that our armed services had everything they needed to carry out their jobs effectively.

Asked about the BBC report that said 2000 more British troops would be sent to Afghanistan, the PMS said that the Prime Minister had made the position clear on the level of forces in Afghanistan on Tuesday at his press conference when he had said that we would not comment on unsourced rumours.

Asked for the Prime Minister s full comments, the PMS, paraphrasing, replied that the Prime Minister had said that we were in discussion with the US about our overall strategy in Afghanistan and decisions on the level of forces required would be made following recommendations from Commanders on the ground.
