Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Seventh Report

Annex Y

Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

from Mr Nigel Griffiths MP

I note from yesterday's Mail on Sunday that Jacqui Lait MP is referring a legacy I received from my father, to you.

The facts are plain: my father's estate was settled in 1996 and he left his money to my wife and me, expressing a desire that certain of Hilary's needs are met. There is no formal trust. I do not believe that a legacy from a parent was or is declarable.

If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for giving this matter your attention.
