Select Committee on Standards and Privileges First Report

Appendix 3: Letter to the Clerk of the Committee from Mr Elfyn Llwyd, 12 November 2007

I refer to the copy of the Commissioner's report sent to me.

I am grateful for the opportunity to give oral evidence to the Committee but I do not think that much can be added in so doing.

I would wish to make on further comment however. I note the Commissioner's intention to make representations at paragraph 76. Might I also pose the following some further consideration:

All four areas of complaint against me were scrutinised and vetted by the DFA and were approved for action. What therefore is the point of DFA being on hand to advise if later they then decide that strictly following such advice causes transgressions of the rules?
