Letter to Mr Gerald Shamash, Steel &
Shamash, Solicitors from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards
Thank you for your clear and helpful letter
of 30 November 2000 and perhaps you would pass on my thanks also
to Mr Thomas for his offer of further assistance.
I would also be grateful if he would let me
know the following:
(i) The name of the account into which the
donations from Mr Attwal were paid. The date and the amount of
(ii) The name of the account into which Councillor
Mustafa Kamal paid £16 initially, later £8 by monthly
standing order, and copies of the bank statements which related
to those accounts. (Mr Kamal's bank, Lloyds TSB has confirmed
that such a standing order in favour of the Labour Party operated
between October 1988 and January 1990).
May I thank you and Mr Thomas again for your
help on these matters.
30 November 2000
