SpinWatch Seeks Investigation Of Ken Clarke & BAT

SpinWatch Asks the Serjeant At Arms Office At Palace of Westminster to Investigate Ken Clarke and Whether he Has Abused the Privileges of the House of Commons

SpinWatch – a new organisation dedicated to tracking corporate and political spin – has today written to the Serjeant At Arms Office at the Palace of Westminster to investigate the activities of Ken Clarke MP.

In the letter we have enclosed evidence that suggests that Clarke, the Deputy Chairman of BAT has abused the privileges of the House of Commons to further the interests of British American Tobacco.

We have uncovered documents that show that Mr. Clarke has been using parliamentary phones and faxes to undertake business on behalf of BAT. Furthermore, Clarke’s parliamentary secretary, Debbie Sugg, has also been acting as his secretary on BAT business. She was even on BAT’s internal mail system.
