Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Third Report

Annex 78

Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards from Mr Gerald Shamash, Steel & Shamash, Solicitors

  Thank you for your letter of 13 November 2000.

  I have now been able to talk to my client about the information you are seeking.

  He has, as you are of course aware, explained directly to you on the telephone and in correspondence that from his recollection he has not made a direct appeal for funds.

  However, so that he can be absolutely sure and in view of the fact that you appear to have witnesses suggesting that such an appeal was made, it would be helpful if you could indication the period to which this relates.

  Our client has been Secretary of the Constituency Party for the period September 1992 until June 2000. This would involve a considerable trawl through documentation. Some indication of dates would assist. I would then hope to be able to respond promptly to the queries raised.

  I look forward to hearing from you.

14 November 2000
