Briefing from the Prime Minister's Spokesman on: FOI Timing

From No.10 website:
"Asked if the Government was still happy that the drugs report that was released at 1745 on Friday was released in "the right way", the (PMS) said that the reports released were Freedom of Information announcements, and not news announcements. They were responses to individual requests which were then made available to everyone afterwards.

Asked if the Government was winning the war on drugs, the PMS explained some parts of the reports that were released on Friday were complied some time ago. The PMS said the Government continued to deal with the fight against the drug problem and had implemented a range of new measures to tackle the problems."
