Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Second Report

Annex 33

Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards from Mr John Maxton MP

Thank you for the message you left for me on my voice mail service.

I do appreciate the speed of your response. However I would be grateful if you could write to me re-iterating the points you made in your message.

In particular, I would ask you to clarify your statement that the complainant is Mr Nelson and not the Observer newspaper. I attach a copy of the original message sent to you by Mr Nelson and the message you sent to your assistant and then to me. You will note that it clearly states that the complaint comes from the Observer. It would therefore be helpful if you could tell me why you believe the complainant is Mr Nelson.
