The Don’t Get Fooled Again transparency challenge…
Following on from the bizarre refusal by the Parliamentary authorities to reveal even the number of MPs currently under investigation for corruption, and prompted by Paul Bradshaw of www.helpmeinvestigate.com, I just sent the following message to the Labour Party. I’ve also sent similar messages to both the Conservatives and the Liberal Democrats.
Dear Sir or Madam,
I’m a writer and blogger reporting on the election. I’m writing to ask if any Labour MPs who are standing for re-election on May 6th are currently being investigated by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards, and if so whether [you] will release their names?
I will also be putting this question to the Conservative Party and the Liberal Democrats, with responses published in full on my website here: http://richardwilsonauthor.wordpress.com
Many thanks in advance for your help on this.
