Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner
for Standards from Mr Z Pala
Your letter of 24 May 2000 asks information
about this company and Shree Keith Vaz MP for Leicester East.
My company did not give him a car either for his use or for the
election campaign. I am sure that members of my staff voted for
him on election day as he has been helpful to the community. This
shop is in the area of Mrs Patricia Hewitt MP for Leicester West
and we have displayed her posters in our windows at no cost to
her during her election campaign in 1997. Our home is in the area
of Shree Jim Marshall MP for South Leicester.
This company has not given her a car. Again
members of staff I am sure voted for her. There are no company
cars to give in this way to any politicians. We have not given
cash or anything else to any politicians in Leicester including
Shree Keith Vaz MP or Mrs Hewitt MP who we both respect and admire.
If I have problems we will refer to them the normal way.
I would like to know who is providing you with
this information about us which is not true. Please note for your
files that my address is on * * * * and not * * * * as you say
in your letter but your letter has now reached me.
