Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Seventh Report

Annex G

Letter to Mrs Jacqui Lait MP

from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

Further to my letter of 5 November 2001 I have now made preliminary enquiries into the matter you raised.

I have had a detailed response from Mr Griffiths along with a copy of a statement he agreed with the Fees Office for publication and I attach copies for your information.

As you will see from his letter of response Mr Griffiths has provided information covering the points you raised. Unless you have information which is at variance with that provided by Mr Griffiths I am not of the view that any investigation is warranted in this instance.

I would be grateful if you would let me know as soon as possible if this deals with the concern you raised or if you wish to put anything further to me.

I am copying this letter to Mr Griffiths for information.
