As we all know, the DfT has two mandatory security questions that have to be asked during the check-in process.

Could anyone have interfered with your bags since they were packed?

Has anybody given you anything to carry onto the aircraft? (or any check-in agents similar ad-lib)

However, when I went into work on Tuesday morning, a memo had come through from the airline to say that following discussions with the DfT, we now no longer have to ask these questions. I did a quick search of Google but could not find anything as to their withdrawl.

Does anybody know any more about the retraction of the requirment to ask these questions now.

This is true and several airlines have already implemented it. Such as WW,BE and TOM. I'm not sure of the exact reasons, but its something along the lines of there being so many security checks at present, just asking a question is deemed as not worth it anymore.
There is a still an emphasis being put on Dangerous Goods notices and Liquid restrictions.

Both easyJet and FlyBE issued memo's during the summer regarding this and that it was no longer a DfT rule... However, some of their handling agents such as servisair and some airlines both stated they wish to continue asking the questions... Though now it seems these agents and airlines are following suit.
