Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Third Report

Annex 165

Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards from Mr Bakshish S Attwal MBE, B S Attwall & Co Ltd

  Regarding your letter dated 28 June 2000. My replies to your queries are as follows:

  1.  Yes.

  2.  Mrs Merlyn Vaz (Keith's mother) personally collected the cheque from my office.

  3.  No other donations were ever made to any other political party or personality.

  4.  I do not actually know who Mr John Thomas is. Unless you mean Councillor John Thomas, whom I vaguely know. We only ever exchange "hello's" whenever I come across him at some seminars, that is all. The question of any payment to him does not arise.

  I hope this information helps.
