Minister Says Republicans Can Swear False OathDear Mr P,
I am sorry to learn that you feel prevented from standing in the general election. I can only say that noted republicans have long been represented in parliament and obviously feel that the oath they take does not prevent them from sitting in the House of Commons.
Please to not hesitate to contact me if you feel I can be of further help in the future.
Rt. Hon. Tessa Jowell MP
