Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Third Report

Annex O

Letter to Mr John Maxton from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

I wrote to you on 18 July 2001 requesting a reply to my letter of 19 April 2001.

You telephoned me on that day and said that you would not be replying to my letters of 19 April or 18 July.

In my letter of 18 July I explained that the Committee had decided that I should continue with my enquiries and I have done so.

I am now in the process of compiling my report for the Committee and expect to provide it to them for their first meeting on 23 October 2001.

This letter is to alert you to this time table and particularly to provide you with a further opportunity of replying to my letters or providing a statement on this complaint which I will append in full to my report.

If you do wish to write to me may I request your letter by 10 October 2001 at the latest.

26 September 2001
