Nelson Mandela memorial
Asked about the Prime Minister’s (PM’s) attendance at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service, the PMS said no formal discussions had taken place, but the PM had met with several leaders and former leaders at the service.
Asked about the roll out of Universal Credit and criticism from the National Audit Office (NAO), the PMS said that it was always important to look at reports from the NAO. A gradual roll out of Universal Credit was at the heart of its implementation, to ensure the findings from pilots were taken on board.
