Asked how many departments had settled their spending plans, the PMS said that the Treasury had confirmed at the end of last week that two Cabinet Ministers were joining the Public Expenditure Committee as they had become eligible to do so as a result of having provisionally settled their budgets. There was no update beyond that.

Asked when the review into higher education would be published, the PMS said that there was not yet a fixed date for publication. The department had said it would be in the autumn.

Asked if the Prime Minister was disappointed that the company Wolseley was moving its tax base to Switzerland, the PMS said that he would not comment on individual companies’ tax issues.

Asked if the Prime Minister agreed with the Chief Secretary to the Treasury that tax avoidance was a mega sin, the PMS said that the government’s position was that it would take a tough stance on tax avoidance.
