Have your say

A leaflet distributed in Prestonpans last week by local independence campaigners has fallen foul of electoral legislation.

The Electoral Commission, the independent elections watchdog, says it will now be monitoring Yes East Lothian to ensure there are no future infringements.

It follows complaints from East Lothian MP Fiona O’Donnell (Lab) that the leaflet – advertising a public meeting on the referendum – did not carry an imprint showing who had produced it or funded it.

Full story in this week’s East Lothian News, on sale now.
