I would like rosie winterton to actually breakdown the figures for the help lines and give some examples of which ones the money went to.....were the monies given to the large charities i.e. rethink, sane, mind etc and if so how much did they get in comparison to the smaller voluntary run help lines....I am especially interested in kent's help lines...
many thanx
