Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner
for Standards from Mr Mohammed Pathan
Thank you for your letter of 10th September 2001,
which I received today on 14th September 2001. It has obviously
crossed with my letter of 30th August 2001.
I made it clear in our meeting on 4th July 2001 in
response to your question as to whether the company booked the
meeting on 23rd June 1999 that it did not. I expressed surprise
at this suggestion as can be seen from the transcript. I repeated
this again at paragraph 2 of my letter of 30th August. If you
would let me know who your informant is I will be able to enquire
I did not have an office in Mr Vaz's constituency
office in June 1999, nor was I employed there. It seems that someone
is deliberately giving you incorrect information, if you will
let me know whom your informant is I can enquire further.
I have now heard from the landlords. They have informed
me that the rental per month was £108.33 and that a total
of £3509.83 have been paid to them. Please let me know if
you require any further information on this.
I have spent a great deal of time on these matters.
Please let me know if my bill of costs could be submitted to you
as a reimbursement.
14 September 2001
