Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Fifth Report

Annex vii3

Letter to the Rt Hon Lord Lamont of Lerwick from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

You may be aware that I am currently investigating complaints that Mr Vaz failed to register all his interests in the Members Register of Interests in the House of Commons. I have taken evidence from a number of witnesses and am now seeking to verify information.

I understand that you served as non-executive director on the board of General Mediterranean Holdings and/or its subsidiary companies where Mr Vaz was a non-executive director.

Please would you let me have the following information with supporting documentation, if available, from your records:

1.  The exact period during which Mr Vaz was a non-executive director of any company or its subsidiary where you are, or have been, a non-executive director giving the name of the company and dates.

2.  The remuneration agreed for Mr Vaz for his services.

3.  The remuneration paid to Mr Vaz.

If you would prefer to discuss this with me perhaps you would telephone my office to suggest a convenient time for me to meet you.

May I thank you in advance for your assistance.
