Today’s briefing from the Prime Minister’s Spokesman (PMS!) covered a range of topics and included some carefully worded answers on Heathrow that rather ducked the questions:

Morning press briefing from 31 January 2008


Asked if the Government held a view on the location and growth of Heathrow, the PMS said that the Government’s position in relation to the expansion of Heathrow was well-documented, well known and hadn’t changed. The Prime Minister had expressed his view on the subject on several occasions and believed that it was right that there should be a consultation as to whether or not there should be an expansion of capacity at Heathrow. Asked if the Prime Minister had ever agreed to a deal with BAA in which BAA would support Crossrail in return for the expansion of Heathrow, the PMS said he was not aware that anybody had ever made such suggestions.
