LONDON (AP) - Prime Minister Tony Blair said Monday he had received no information suggesting the United States planned to bomb the Al-Jazeera television network.

The Daily Mirror last week published a document it said was a transcript of an April 2004 meeting between President Bush and Blair in which Bush spoke of attacking Al-Jazeera's headquarters in Doha, Qatar.

The newspaper, citing unidentified officials, said Blair argued against an attack. It quoted officials as disagreeing about whether Bush's alleged comment was a joke or was meant seriously.

A White House spokesman last week called the claims ``outlandish and inconceivable.''

Lawmaker Adam Price asked Blair in a written question made public Monday ``what information you received on action that the United States administration proposed to take against the Al-Jazeera television channel.''

Blair replied: ``None.''
