Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Third Report

Annex 112

Letter to Councillor Mustafa Kamal from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

  I attach a copy of a letter I received from Mr Colin Hall, Chair of Leicester East Constituency Labour Party. I can not help thinking that the contents of his letter amounts to nothing short of back door pressure on me to cease to assist you in your inquiries. I will go even further and say that I am asked to make public statement that I lied to you, which of course is incorrect. It ought to be a matter of concern to both of us that correspondence which was confidential ends up in the hands of a third party.

  I am sure that you will take appropriate action, if any needed and if it falls within your remit to deal with this matter.
