Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Third Report

Annex 171

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


  I have now received the proof you sent me regarding the donation of £250, which I paid to the "premises fund" on 9 January 1995.

  I am enclosing herewith a photocopy of the cheque book stub, of that date, for your perusal. You enabled me to trace this payment by providing me with the date. With this information we searched our records and found the cheque for £250. As it happened a long time ago, it is not possible for me to remember every payment that is made or received by my company by heart, and I have no recollection of this one at all.

  As far as the activities or functions of these institutions: "The Premises Fund" and the "50 Club" are concerned, I have no idea. However, I am sure you can obtain this information from Mr Gratrix, whom you say is the chairman of the Constituency Leicester East CLP. I have never been a member, nor a patron of either "The Premises Fund" or the "50 Club".
