JEREMY CORBYN has accused Labour MP Margaret Hodge of a “total breach of trust” by recording a private meeting between them without his permission.
The Labour leader wrote of his “extreme disappointment” of hearing on Radio 4 that Ms Hodge recorded their meeting last week despite agreeing that it would be private.
He also defended the party’s handling of anti-semitism cases following Ms Hodge’s accusation that members of his team had interfered.
On Tuesday, Ms Hodge claimed that he had either misled her or been misled himself about the extent of his team’s involvement.
Mr Corbyn wrote that a “very small group of staff” in his office were asked by Labour’s governance and legal unit (GLU) to help clear the backlog of cases during the transition from former general secretary Iain McNicol to his successor Jennie Formby.
He said that his staff complied in an “act of good faith” but that decisions remained with the GLU and that there were no attempts to overrule them.
