Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner
for Standards from Finers Stephens Innocent, Solicitors
We write further to our letter of 27 June 2000.
We note that while you responded on 28 June
2000, that letter stated "May I deal with some of your points".
Except for noting our "inaccurate comments
about [your] interest" you have not dealt with our queries
set out in our letter of 27 June, relating to Peter Soulsby.
Neither, have you provided us with transcripts
and tapes of The Sunday Times article of 14 May 2000, or
the "other evidence" to which you referred out client
as we have requested.
You informed our client on the telephone on
Tuesday 27 March, that if he did not come to see you by Friday
30 June, that is today, then you would report to the Chairman
of the Committee that he had not co-operated by failing to come
to meet you. While these various other matters are outstanding,
you will appreciate that we cannot of course advise our client
as to whether or not he should meet with you.
We should therefore be grateful if you would
deal with these outstanding matters without further delay.
30 June 2000
