Transcript editing policy

This news article was published under the 2005 to 2010 Labour government

We provide transcripts of many of the Prime Minister's press conferences, speeches and interviews as soon as we can on this website.

Sometimes it is necessary to edit the transcripts. This is either because, in accordance with long-standing practice under the Ministerial and Civil Service codes, government websites cannot carry party political content, or because the audio quality has made it impossible to transcribe.
