 Downing Street Says...: Tessa Jowell
Put that Tessa Jowell believed that she had not breached the Ministerial Code, and was that to say that there was still a debate about whether she had or not, the PMOS said that that was what Tessa Jowell's statement had dealt with.
Asked again if Tessa Jowell had kept in touch every step of the way, and therefore, had the Permanent Secretary agreed that she had not breached the Ministerial Code, the PMOS said he was not going to speak on behalf of the Permanent Secretary as that was not his role.
Put that the PMOS had told journalists that Tessa Jowell had made that judgment, and that she had discussed that judgement with her Permanent Secretary, and unless the Permanent Secretary and Tessa Jowell had reached different conclusions, then therefore, she had the Permanent Secretary's backing, the PMOS replied that he was simply stating the facts.

 Morning press briefing from 27 February 2006
Jowell had "fallen foul" of it, the PMOS said that as people knew, Tessa Jowell had said at the weekend that she believed that she had not done anything that conflicted with her interests as a Secretary of State, and that she had kept within the Ministerial Code.
Clearly, Tessa Jowell, as she had been throughout, would continue to discuss the matter with her Permanent Secretary to ensure that she kept within the Ministerial Code and that her understanding of it was correct.
The facts were that Tessa Jowell had said that she did not believe that she had broken the Ministerial Code, or that there had been a conflict of interest, and she had continued to keep her Permanent Secretary informed of such matters.

 Tessa Jowell warns of BBC concerns   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
LONDON -- Culture Secretary Tessa Jowell said Friday the BBC may face consequences for controversial news reports relating to the Iraq war and the death of Defense Ministry scientist David Kelly, but she emphasized that the issue will remain "separate" from the government's comprehensive review of the pubcaster's Royal Charter.

Jowell refused to be drawn on the matter but said the BBC must retain the trust of the public.

In an interview with the Guardian, during which she repeatedly expressed anger and astonishment at the "scale of misrepresentation" which her bill had attracted in the media, Ms Jowell also assured MPs that there will be no "Las Vegas-style" casinos which simply duplicated the American model.

But Ms Jowell insists her bill was four years in preparation and the policy behind it greeted with near universal acclaim - until the past 10 days of newspaper attacks, led by the Daily Mail's "kill the bill" campaign.

Given, I hope, that Tessa Jawohl will by then be a rather dusty footnote in the history of Gauleiter Blair and his All Singing All Dancing Troupe of Authoritarians then I would actually rather like to see the Olympics in London.
