Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Fifth Report

Annex iv16

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

Thank you for your letter of 27 September 2001.

Following your paragraph numbers:

36.  As far as I am aware you are missing nothing. I explained what I need from you in my letter of 23 August. I quote —

    "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."

To deal with properties with which you have, or have had, no connection please strike through their details on the information which I have sent to you and confirm to me that you have struck out properties which you have neither owned nor received rental income from at any time.

If any property was sold or transferred to Ms Fernandes, Mrs Vaz senior, Mapesbury Communications or the Asian Business Network please give those details and the date of the transaction.

37.  There are no missing schedules for 70 Teignmouth Road, NW2. I attach the electoral record from which the table was compiled. You will see they are identical.

    In addition the table includes the B.T. information about the use of the premises at 70A Teignmouth Road by the Asian Business Network.

May I reiterate that all I need from you is a comprehensive and complete list of your property interests and confirmation that during your time as a Member you have neither owned nor received rental income from any other property.
