Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Second Report

Annex 94

Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards from Mr Kevin Reid

I refer to your letter of the 7th of June, a copy of which was faxed to me by your office on the 19th June.

I refer you to the content of my previous letter of 31st of May.

To be quite clear, I personally have not requested, or received, or been provided with a financial reference from the Labour party.

I did apply for a Mortgage in April 1999, after I had received a permanent job offer from another company, which I had accepted. The lender involved was Northern Rock. I assume Northern Rock will have obtained a reference from the Labour Party. I have no knowledge of the details of any financial reference which may have been provided by the Labour Party on my behalf.

At the time of applying for this mortgage, I had not worked for my father for over six months.
