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.
