Small Print.

So, fresh from losing a case in the small claims court to an electrician he refused to pay on a point of principle, it would appear that Labour MP Brian Donohoe has fallen foul of House of Commons' rules by using parliamentary stationery to promote a Labour Party fundraising event.

"A SCOTTISH Labour MP appears to have broken parliamentary rules by using publicly funded facilities to advertise a boozy fundraising dinner for his local party. Brian Donohoe's office sent flyers for a "dinner with Alastair Campbell", the former director of communications for Tony Blair, on House of Commons notepaper - a practice that is strictly forbidden."

He said he gave instructions for the paper not to be used, so clearly there was an oversight somewhere.
