From the Times:
MLP leadership hopefuls asked not to speak to the press
The electoral commission overseeing the process for the election of Labour Party leader has written to all those showing an interest in contesting the election, asking them not to give comments to the press. The letter, signed by Joe Falzon, chairman of the commission, is dated April 1 but is being taken seriously by the candidates.
Comments will follow later. Meanwhile I am off for birthday dinner.
