Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Seventh Report

Annex P

Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

from Mr Nigel Griffiths MP

Thank you for your letter which I received today, and which we discussed briefly.

I acknowledge a failure to register the ownership of property or the rent with the Registrar of MPs Interests. In compliance with the law in Scotland the ownership has always been in the public domain. The rental income was not and I have today amended my entry in the register after taking advice from [the Registrar].

I have also been discussing this with the Fees Office and I have given Mr Cameron a full explanation which I append. I hope to have a response from him tomorrow and would wish to take up your kind offer of a meeting as soon as I have the views of the Fees Office.

Thank you again for your help.
