Further letter to Mr Andrew Walker, Director
of Finance and Administration, House of Commons, from the Registrar
of Members` Interests
Further to our meeting last Wednesday and my letter
to you of 11 May, I now enclose some additional material about
the Scottish Labour Party (SLP) budget projections which has,
been supplied by Mr Alex Rowley, the former General Secretary
of the SLP.
The new information of particular interest is on
page 2 of the Briefing Note, numbers 7 and 8 (which refer to items
7 and 8 in the budget projection). These appear to suggest some
sort of linkage between the SLP`s salary projections for Mr Reid
and Mr Winslow and what they were assumed to be receiving from
the Fees Office.
The numbered references in Mr Rowley`s note of 15
May to Elizabeth Filkin relate to her letter to Mr Rowley of 4
May (copy attached). You will see that several of the questions
in that letter (which we also discussed last week) now appear
to have been answered by Mr Rowley.
We have written both to Alex Rowley and Jonathan
Upton at Millbank asking for details about comparable salary rates
and the question of the bonus scheme. I will let you have that
further information as soon as we get it.
