Sent to Guido, via Ed Mitchell, SpAd to Rt Hon. Margaret Beckett MP.
“The trust to which the letter refers was a blind trust set up while in Opposition in accordance with the then rules of the House of Commons and approved by the House authorities. It dried up and was closed down many years ago. The Secretary of State is not prepared to make any further comment on this matter”
Guido says that is simply not good enough, what is she hiding?
- Who were the donors?
- How much did they give?
- Were any donors foreign?
- Who were the trustees?
- Why the secrecy?
- Did Lord Levy set up or raise funds for the trust?
- How many donors to the secret Margaret Beckett Research and Administration Trust subsequently got honours?
