The Prime Minister has ordered an inquiry into claims allegedly made in a suicide note left by the Labour MP Gordon McMaster, it emerged last night.

The investigation, by the Chief Whip, Nick Brown, follows newspaper claims that Mr McMaster left a letter in which he accused two senior Labour colleagues of conducting a whispering campaign against him which may have been a factor in his death.

Reports said the letter named Tommy Graham, Labour MP for Renfrewshire West and Lord (Don) Dixon, the former Labour deputy chief whip. Mr McMaster was said to have asked that the letter be published.
