Re: Parliamentary Services Funded Offices being used for Party Business

Dear Dr Smith,

As you may be aware a number of MPs have been using their parliamentary services offices for Party business.

Could you please inform me if this is legal, and in the event it is not legal could you please inform me of how I formally complain about this abuse of Parliamentary Services funding.

If I can prove Party’s have been using Parliamentary Services funded offices for party business could you please outline the action you will take against offenders. In the event you choose not to take action could you please give me details of how I take action to prevent this rort from continuing.

Yours faithfully


Cameron Slater

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
