Peter Hain writes to Neath Ferret (Re. Just Stan)
"You ought to be aware of this before publishing your article"
Posted on 09/12/14 in Press Release,
‘In 2013/14 my staffing costs were unusually high because a member of my staff was diagnosed with cancer requiring immediate hospitalisation for major surgery and subsequent adjuvant therapy. Temporary secretarial cover was required at short notice to cover the period of leave as is provided for in the rules to enable me to continue to serve my constituents until my staff member had fully recovered and returned to work.’
The Neath Ferret understands that this information is now in the public domain - on Peter Hain's website. We publish it in good faith.
Stan's column is due out on Sunday, 14th September.
