Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Appendices to the Minutes of Evidence

Annex 1

Letter to Mr Keith Vaz MP

from Mr Jake Bharier, Skillshare International

Thank you for your fax relating to your time as a director and Trustee of Skillshare Africa, the name of which was changed to Skillshare International last year. In answer to your four questions:

1.  Our copies of forms submitted to Companies House show that you were appointed as a director of Skillshare Africa on 11 September 1990, and that you resigned as a director on 13 July 1992.

2.  I have examined the minutes of Board meetings held between those dates. Your presence is not recorded at any of them: in most cases, your apologies for absence are recorded.

3.  We have had no director by the name of *** during the existence of Skillshare Africa. However, *** was appointed as a director of Skillshare Africa on 30 May 1992. He is still a director and Trustee.

4.  Since we have no Mr ***, I can only conclude that you would have attended no meeting with him during the period indicated in your fax. I have spoken to Mr ***, who tells me that he has no recollection of ever meeting you.

I hope this is sufficient for your purpose. If you need any further information, please contact me.
