It has come to our attention that there is a link to one of our Standard Notes, about all women shortlists, on your blog site. Regrettably the table erroneously listed Geraldine Smith as being selected as a candidate at the 1997 general election as a result of being on an all women shortlist. I gather that this mistake has caused Ms Smith some embarrassment and we are very sorry that this has happened; the corrected note is now available at http://www.parliament.uk/commons/lib/research/briefings/snpc-05057.pdf.

I can only suggest that Isobel and her colleagues warn their parents to expect a call! Unfortunately the House of Commons library failed to send me, the author, this email otherwise I would have dealt with it earlier.
By the way, if you would like to see Geraldine Smith´s record as an MP visit here.
