§ Mr. Mandelson
To ask the Prime Minister what is the Cabinet Committee on policy co-ordination and presentation in supervising Government announcements, irrespective of department; and how a distinction is made between the objective presentation and timing of these announcements and their use for party political benefits. 
§ The Prime Minister
I published the terms of reference of the ministerial committee on the co-ordination and presentation of Government policy on 21 March 1995Official Report, column 112. The committee's terms of reference make it clear that the committee's role is to consider the co-ordination and presentation of Government, as distinct from party, policy. It is therefore subject to the published conventions relating to Government publicity.
