Downing Street said that Mr Cameron has not spoken with BP about their concern about the rising compensation costs from the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill, nor did he raise the issue with president Obama or other US authorities during his visit last week. A Number 10 spokesperson said:
Ultimately this is an issue for BP. The Prime Minister will always listen to the concerns of British businesses and consider any issues raised.
