Smith Commission’s report is fatally flawed

SIR, Unusually, I must agree with Mr Mundell - the Conservative Party’s philosophy has indeed formed the basis of the Smith Commission’s report. It is also clear that the Commission members did make an effort to compromise and work together – and produced a draft report.
