Asked about Danny Alexander’s comment that ‘the credit rating is not the be-all and end-all’ and whether this was a change in Government position, the PMOS said that what mattered for the Government was having the right polices in place including a credible policy for reducing the deficit. He also pointed to that fact that all three ratings agencies continued to award the UK a triple-A rating.
