The Committee on Standards and Privileges has
agreed to the following Report:
COMPLAINT AGAINST MARJORIE MOWLAM
1. We have considered a memorandum by the Parliamentary
Commissioner for Standards relating to the complaint by Mr Peter
Ainsworth, Member for East Surrey, against Marjorie Mowlam, Member
for Redcar. The Commissioner's memorandum is appended to this
2. We agree with the Commissioner that Dr Mowlam
should have registered the donation from Mr Greg Dyke by name.
We are concerned that Dr Mowlam gave inaccurate information to
Sir Gordon Downey when he investigated a previous complaint against
her. Dr Mowlam told the present Commissioner that that had been
an oversight on her part. Members must ensure that the information
they give the Commissioner is both correct and complete.
3. We recommend that no further action be taken.
