From Mr George Foulkes, MP

Sir: If the accuracy of your so-called survey of Labour MPs is to be assessed by your account of the views you attribute to me, it is wholly spurious ("Cannabis inquiry backed by 27 Labour MPs", 4 November). At no time have I supported the legalisation of cannabis, indeed I have publicly and strongly opposed it on a number of occasions.

I do not, of course, oppose a public debate on this issue; but my opposition and that of the Labour Party should be in no doubt.

Yours etc,

George Foulkes

MP for Carrick, Cumnock and Doon Valley (Lab)

House of Commons

London, SW1
