Leader Of The Opposition And Short Money

EDM number 214 in 1997-98, proposed by Fraser Kemp on 07/07/1997.

That this House notes the reported intention of the Leader of the Opposition to use the so-called Short Money to fund the Conservative Research Department; believes that this money should not be used to fund Conservative campaigning as opposed to supporting the Conservative Party in Parliament, as the resolution of the House provides for; is concerned that this will deprive members of the Shadow Cabinet who may have differing views from the Leader of the opportunity to appoint any staff of their own; and further believes that no voter will trust the Opposition Front Bench with the running of the country when their Leader does not trust them to run an office.

This motion has been signed by a total of 30 MPs.
