Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner
from Pete Wishart MP
I am writing to you requesting a full standards investigation
by your office into the failure by Edinburgh South MP and DTI
Minister Mr Nigel Griffiths to register his interest in the ownership
of his constituency office, and allegations of misuse of House
of Commons allowances.
I enclose the newspaper articles from the Scottish
Mail on Sunday and Scotland on Sunday (9/12/01),
detailing this latest problem of Labour MPs and their expenses.
The SNP/Paid Cymru Group believe that the recent
cases of Labour MPs requiring investigation illustrate the need
to maintain a robust, independent, and properly-resources Westminster
