Labour checks Howard's record

Independent 23 January - Labour checks Howard's record
"Labour Party researchers are using the Freedom of Information Act to try to winkle out information on Michael Howard's record as a government minister.

The request for government papers dating back to the late 1980s or early 1990s will open the Labour Party to the accusation that it is planning a campaign of dirty tricks. But it says that since Mr Howard is currently the only alternative to Tony Blair as a possible Prime Minister, his record in office is a legitimate election issue"
