Conduct Of Hon Members For Blackpool South And South Ribble And The World In Action Television Programme

EDM number 863 in 1991-92, proposed by Tom Pendry on 13/03/1992.

That this House congratulates the World in Action Programme on exposing the disgraceful politically-motivated smear campaign waged over at least 10 years against leading Labour Party members and supporters by the Right honourable Member for Blackpool South and the honourable Member for South Ribble; and notes that they (a) were personally involved in securing secret payments amounting to many thousands of pounds to fund the dirty tricks campaign and (b) acknowledged to The Sunday Times that there was no substance whatsoever to any of their claims.

This motion has been signed by a total of 4 MPs.
