E-mail to the Parliamentary Commissioner
for Standards from Mr Dean Nelson, Sunday Times Scotland
The enclosed letter from John Maxton MP to Lesley
Quinn, general secretary of the Scottish Labour Party, was sent
anonymously to me at the Sunday Times.
It appears from the contents that (a) Mr Maxton misled the Standards
Committee, and (b) that the Labour Party deliberately withheld
key documents from your inquiry. You may wish to revisit the inquiry
in the light of its contents.
