Plant Some Questions Please, Please

A Guido co-conspirator has a “Conspiracy Member” t-shirt on his way for this bit of gold. Alison Seabeck is Geoff Hoon’s lackey, shed sent this email to the PLP canvassing for planted questions for her slow-on-his-feet boss.

Dear all,

As some of you may already be aware, I was recently appointed PPS to Geoff Hoon, Minister for Europe in the Foreign & Commonwealth Office.

I am currently on a fact finding mission to find out what you believe are the main issues that should be raised in relation to Europe. The Minister for Europe’s remit covers more than just the European Union, he is also responsible for the countries of the Russian Federation and the South Caucuses, as well as the ASCE and NATO. Having looked at some questions that have been asked over the last 12 months, I have a general idea of some key issues but would appreciate your views and opinions.

With regards to the EU, a number of questions have been raised on further enlargement with the accession of new member states from Eastern Europe, the Balkans and Turkey. There have also been questions around the issue of the ‘European Constitution’ and EU powers. Environmental issues and budgets/finance are also very much at the forefront of people’s minds.

However, there are a number of policy areas which concern us all on the domestic front and also have European implications – rights at work; equality issues; crime; climate change. If you would be willing to consider an EU perspective to your questions in the House and would like to discuss further please either return attached slip or email seabecka@parliament.uk , fax 020 7219 0883 or call me on 020 7219 8330. Alternatively, stop me in the corridor when you see me.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours

Alison Seabeck

Didn’t Hoon spend rather a lot of time during the Hutton affair beating up Andrew Gilligan for “planting” questions with the select committee…?

Quote of the Day

Jo Swinson on Chris Rennard…

“Vince — and Tim before him — have repeatedly, publicly said Rennard is not welcome anywhere near their frontbench team, even as an adviser. I remain deeply frustrated that he was not expelled from the party through its disciplinary process. It just feels wrong, and I do not want Lord Rennard to continue as a member of the party. As far as I am concerned, he is not welcome.”
