Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Second Report

Annex 55

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

I am sorry to hear that you are unwilling to meet me on Monday next to allow me to check your response to the complaint and for me to make sure I have a full picture from you.

As I have said previously, as soon as I have completed my enquiries I will put to you any information I have which is at variance with what you have given me so that you may comment on it before I take any decisions on what I should report to the Standards and Privileges Committee.

If you prefer it you may, of course, make comment to me in writing but I should make it clear that I continue to offer you the opportunity of meeting me to discuss the matters and that I may need to invite you to meet me should I feel that to be necessary.
