Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Fifth Report

Annex vii5

Letter to Mr Arif Husain, General Mediterranean Holding (UK) Ltd, from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

You may be aware that I am currently investigating complaints that Mr Vaz failed to register all his financial interests in the House of Commons Register of Members Interests.

I have taken evidence from a number of witnesses and am now seeking to verify that information.

Lord Lamont of Lerwick has suggested that I write to you for information concerning Mr Vaz's directorship(s) for General Mediterranean Holdings.

Please would you let me have the following information from your records with supporting documentation such as extracts from minutes, correspondence or other company records.

1.  The exact period(s) during which Mr Vaz served as a non-executive director on the Board of General Mediterranean Holdings and/or any of its subsidiary companies or associated companies.

2.  The remuneration agreed by the company for Mr Vaz's service(s) with the date(s) on which it was agreed.

3.  The date(s) on which the agreed remuneration(s) was communicated to Mr Vaz.

4.  The amount of any remuneration paid to Mr Vaz at any time, by the company, any associated company, or subsidiary company.

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.
