Blair defies records demand

Guardian 19th April- Blair defies records demand
"Records of the prime minister's dealings with a controversial Labour donor, the millionaire businessman Paul Drayson, should be released in the public interest, the independent parliamentary watchdog has ruled. But Downing Street has refused to comply, and claims other documents have been shredded. After a lengthy investigation, Ann Abraham, the parliamentary ombudswoman, ruled in favour of the publication of a memo recording the two men's conversation at a private breakfast in Downing St during sensitive contract negotiations with his company."
