Labour Councillor And Racism In Tower Hamlets

EDM number 682 in 1993-94, proposed by David Rendel on 24/02/1994.

That this House notes the minutes of the Millwall Labour Party meeting on 14th October 1993 where a Labour councillor is recorded as accusing her own campaign of racist tactics in the Millwall by-election in the words 'Councillor Amor felt there was not sufficient anti-BNP content in the leaflets. She did no work at all during the campaign because she felt the first leaflet (on housing) was racist and attacked housing policy'; further notes the continued failure of the Labour Party to address the accusations of racism in their literature; congratulates the London Liberal Democrats for their immediate action, open enquiry and subsequent appointment of a borough organiser responsible for local literature; and looks forward to the day when the Labour Party approach any accusations or racism against them, within their own ranks, with equal candour, rigour and effectiveness.

This motion has been signed by a total of 7 MPs.
