Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Fifth Report

Attachment 2

Letter to Mr Keith Vaz MP from Mr Mark Manley, Brabners, Solicitors

Thank you for your letter dated 3rd October.

The penultimate paragraph makes reference to my having given you an undertaking that you would not be involved. With respect, I gave no such undertaking. I did say that I did not see any reason why you should become involved and I did confirm that I was content that the conversation I was having with you related to legal proceedings and as such was covered by privilege (for example for the purposes of data protection principles). I confirm that the contents of our conversation will not be disclosed to any third party.
