To ask the Prime Minister if he will make it his policy to request (a) Cabinet Ministers and (b) all other Ministers to disclose publicly whether they are keeping a diary with a view to publication. (97182)

To ask the Prime Minister how many manuscripts of memoirs were submitted to the Cabinet Secretary in each year since 1997; and how many of them were cleared without any amendment of the text being requested in each year. (97336)

As my answer to my hon. Friend of 12 October 2006, Official Report, column 862W, made clear, any discussions between an author and the Cabinet Office on a draft manuscript are confidential.
