Better Late Than Never.

Good to see that someone has finally woken up to the potential conflicts of interest (as previously highlighted by Mr Smith) between the various roles of Lord George Foulkes as a member of the House of Lords, as a Member of the Scottish Parliament, and as a "lobbyist." It took a while, but things should become clearer when the complaint that has been raised is resolved.

"A SENIOR Labour MSP is facing a Holyrood investigation into his lucrative work as a lobbyist in the House of Lords. George Foulkes, who doubles up as a peer and MSP, is being paid £36,000 a year to provide advice to a law firm."
