Sir: If Rhodri Morgan had contacted me about his concerns over the Wales Labour Part y leadership I would have been happy to offer him an assurance that the result was not leaked in any form from Unity Security Balloting Services. Despite speaking and writing to me on many occasions between 28 October and the close of the ballot, he did not raise the issues mentioned in your report "Morgan says Welsh ballot was rigged" (24 February).

Labour Party members in Wales want to get on with promoting the Government's achievements - such as delivering an extra pounds 1bn for the health service in Wales - and exposing the dangerous and divisive policies of our Tory and Nationalist opponents. Attacks on party staff are easy to make, but they do lasting damage to the party by undermining members' confidence.
