Letter: Task of the NEC

Sir: Tony Blair suggests that in the course of the campaign for Labour's NEC I failed to inform party members of my relationship to the magazine Labour Left Briefing (interview, 26 september). In fact, my membership of the Briefing editorial board is specifically mentioned in the official candidate's statement circulated to all party members with the ballot papers. It has also been mentioned in all the leaflets and press releases I have issued.

Far from hiding my radical socialist convictions, I have campaigned openly on them, and if I am elected to the NEC it will be because they are shared by large numbers of party members.
