Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Second Report

Annex 211

Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards from the Rt Hon Donald Dewar MP MSP

I am in receipt of your letter of 20 April 2000.

I am afraid I am not in a position to help with your enquiries. During the campaign for the Scottish Parliament I spent most of my time travelling the country. John Rafferty was of course based at the Scottish Labour Party`s Headquarters in Glasgow during the campaign so we had only limited contact. I have no recollection of any conversation at any time with Mr Rafferty of the nature you describe in your first question. Your further questions on that matter therefore fall.
