Unite Issues Statement on Falkirk

IN response to the announcement that the Police would not be investigating the matters referred to them by the Labour Party in respect of the Falkirk Labour selection row, a Unite spokesman responded: 
'Unite welcomes the police decision not to investigate the Falkirk selection, which appears to be based on an overdue application of common sense to the situation. Unite reaffirms what it has always said – the union broke neither Labour Party rules nor the law in Falkirk. Those in the media who have smeared the union without evidence or justification should now hang their heads in shame. We would hope that Labour will now lift the suspensions of Stevie Deans and Karie Murphy, agree to an independent investigation into what happened in Falkirk, and restore full rights to the constituency party as soon as possible.'
