A flurry of posts today.
Ongoing correspondence with the Operations Directorate at the House of Commons. I think my latest letter is self explanetary:
Assistant Serjeant at Arms
House of Commons
LONDON SW1A 0AA
Your reference: 18.4.2
4 December 2004
Dear Mr Harvey,
Thank you for your letter of the 1st November in which you say:
Mr Allen readily acknowledges that the letter sent to you dated 24 July was not appropriate use of House stationery and postage and has repaid the taxpayer.
The letter I received appeared to have been sent to everyone who voted in the European elections, at the cost of the taxpayer.
Your letter is ambiguous as to whether Mr Allen has repaid the taxpayer only for the letter sent to me, or for the entire mailing, which must have been sent to thousands of people in Nottingham North.
I would be grateful if you could clear this up for me.
Alex Foster MA
