Miliband urged to probe Falkirk after union rep quits

Ed Miliband has been urged to consider reopening Labour's inquiry into allegations of candidate-selection fixing in the Falkirk constituency.

Commenting on today's resignation of Grangemouth union official Stevie Deans, Conservative Party chairman Grant Shapps said:

Stevie Deans' resignation is yet another reason why Ed Miliband must finally act. He must publish the internal Labour inquiry into Falkirk.

Ed Miliband should also open a new inquiry: to investigate properly the initial allegations of selection rigging, and Unite's attempt to subvert the internal inquiry.

– Grant Shapps, Conservative Party Chairman
