There will be no public investigation into the death of the Paisley South MP Gordon McMaster, it was reported yesterday.

If confirmed, the decision would mean that Tommy Graham, the Renfrewshire West MP suspended last week after an internal party inquiry, would not have to give evidence on allegations made against him in his colleague's suicide note.

Mr McMaster accused both Mr Graham and Don Dixon, Labour's former deputy chief whip, of repeating untruths about him. Four other Labour Party members were suspended last week along with Mr Graham and action against irregularities in the Labour Party in the Paisley area are continuing.
