Political Parties and Elections Bill

Volume 485: debated on Thursday 18 December 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Justice with reference to the statement of the Minister of State of 20 October 2008, Official Report, column 120, on the Political Parties and Elections Bill, whether his Department holds a copy of the letter from the affiliated trades unions. (241928)

The letter referred to in the statement was addressed by the then chair of TULO (Trade Union and Labour Party Liaison Organisation) to the General Secretary of the Labour party. The letter is therefore held by the Labour party, although Ministers and special advisers in the Ministry of Justice have seen the letter. The Ministry of Justice does not itself hold a copy of the letter.
