Mr Andrew Mackay and Ms Julie Kirkbride - Standards and Privileges Committee Contents

7.  Letter to the Commissioner from Rt Hon Andrew Mackay, 18 November 2009

Further to the letters that you recently sent me and my wife Julie Kirkbride we were wondering whether you have considered the serious issue of double jeopardy. We note that Sir Thomas Legg has not scrutinised the second home allowances of our colleagues who were being investigated by you so as to avoid double jeopardy. As we are in dialogue with Sir Thomas concerning his provisional findings on issues directly relating to the complaints you raise we would much appreciate your comments and advice.
