1. Introduction

QSO RX J1230.8+0115 was first identified as a candidate quasar with ultra-violet excess (UVX) within the Edinburgh UVX quasar survey (Miller et al 1998). It was confirmed spectroscopically during the construction of a flux limited X-ray selected sample of AGN/QSOs in which the Edinburgh Multi-Colour Survey was used to identify candidate optical counterparts. Covering a contiguous area of 330 deg2, the X-ray sample was based on sources taken from the ROSAT all-sky survey with spectroscopic follow-up being carried out at the Isaac Newton Telescope between 1993 and 1995 (Read et al 1998).
