Asked if people should expect the Prime Minister to make a statement to MPs next week on troop numbers, the PMS said that the timing for any announcement was still to be confirmed and any announcement was dependent on meeting the three conditions that the Prime Minister had set for the troop increase.

This was an important issue and the Prime Minister had made it clear that MPs should have every opportunity to debate issues surrounding Afghanistan.

Asked if people should expect the Prime Minister to make a statement just after President Obama had made his announcement on Afghanistan, the PMS said that she would not speculate on the timing of any announcement or statement by the Prime Minister.
