Party Funding

The Leader was asked if there had been any further progress since his statement on the report by Sir Hayden Phillips. Mr Straw said that arrangements were being made to meet the other parties. It had not happened yet. Asked if he had any names, he said it was up to others to disclose their role. In response to a question about contacts with the minor parties, the Leader said he had written to the party leaders in Northern Ireland to say that he would arrange to meet them, but he was aware that they had other matters on their plate at present. He was making arrangements also to meet others parties, including a meeting with the Scottish National Party, which was in hand. They had an entirely legitimate interest in the issue. He had moved as quickly as he could.
