Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Fifth Report

Annex iv11

Letter to Mr Keith Vaz MP from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

Thank you for your letter of 13th August 2001. You refer to a letter of the 6th August 2001. I assume you mean your letter to me of the 5th August 2001.

Using your paragraph numbers -

17&18  As I have said previously there is no need for you to obtain further electoral registration documents. All I need from you is a complete and accurate record of the properties you have owned since becoming a Member with dates and a list of the people who have lived in those properties with dates. I also need a statement from you showing those from whom rental income has been received at any time during your ownership of those properties. Where any of the properties included in the information which I have sent you have not been owned by you, eg. other flats in a block of flats, please show that as well so that I have a complete picture.

21.     * * *

22.     Thank you for providing me with answers to my questions about Mrs Martin/Matin.

23.     I can confirm that I have put to you all the questions to which I require answers and the information provided to me on which you may wish to comment. I look forward to receiving your answers and comments as soon as possible.

If any further information is provided to me which differs in any way from your answers or comments I will of course put it to you so that you may respond to it before I take any view on it.

I hope you are now fully recovered from your illness and send you my good wishes.

23 August 2001
