Early Day Motion 2224

A Tory MP has today written to Labour chair, Hazel Blears, demanding an apology for the party's "monumental lack of judgment" in raising funds by auctioning a copy of the Hutton report signed by Cherie Blair (Booth).

The party had raised money through selling a signed copy of the official report into the events surrounding the suicide of the government scientist Dr David Kelly.



EDM 2224

That this House notes that senior members of the Labour Party including hon. Members and Government Ministers attended a party fundraising event last week at the Arts Club in Mayfair; further notes that a copy of the official report by Lord Hutton into the death of Government scientist Dr David Kelly, signed by Ms Cherie Booth QC, was auctioned for party funds raising £400; believes this conduct to be in appalling bad taste, arrogant and crassly insensitive in seeking to make money, albeit indirectly, through hawking, as a novelty item, an official Government report into the death of a public servant; regrets the distress caused to the family and friends of the late Dr Kelly; calls on the Labour Party to apologise for such tasteless and offensive conduct and to donate the money raised to an appropriate charity; and deprecates such conduct by hon. Members.
