Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Second Report

Annex 50

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

I write to confirm that I will meet you at 17.00 hours on Monday 17th April 2000 subject to no airline delays on that day. I am surprised that to date I have not received your confirmation of the meeting.

This meeting is at your request. I note that you have agreed to give me all the evidence you have received that you believe may contradict anything I said in my original statement to you in writing prior to the meeting. This must specify the dates the evidence was received and from whom. Any statements must be signed by the person who gave the evidence as a true record of what they said to you. Preferably I would prefer you to send me copies of all the evidence you have received in relation to this unsubstantiated allegation.

Lastly and most importantly I ask yet again for the evidence that Mr Dean Nelson submitted to you in support of his allegations against me prior to your responding to the press that you were instituting an inquiry and informing me that you were doing so.

6 April 2000
