LABOUR FUNDS ROW:The story Cherie bumped off the news

First Post:
Several hundred journalists attend Labour Party annual conferences. So where were they all at 5pm on the first day of this year's conference?

It was at that time that delegates agreed all Labour councillors must pay a levy from their allowances towards party funds. Only today has the matter come to light, following the resignation of a Sunderland councillor.

He has asked police to investigate whether the compulsory levy - which Labour advises council groups to get deducted at source - breaches laws on party donations.
