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

43.  Letter to the former Head of the Fees Office from the Commissioner, 12 August 2010

Thank you for your letter of 8 August responding to mine of 3 August about the comments which I have received from Mr Mackay in respect of the discussion you had with him in or about September 1997.

I was grateful for this further explanation. Your letter goes beyond the matters which I had raised with you and, indeed, beyond the matters which I am considering in this complaint. In view of your comments on the extract from the evidence of the Director of Strategic Projects, however, I will be asking the Director for his response to those points.

I have noted your comments on whether Mr Mackay and Ms Kirkbride each correctly identified their main home, but I know you will appreciate that I will need to form my own conclusions on whether Mr Mackay properly identified his main home on the basis of all the evidence I have received and which, of course, I have not needed to copy to you.

I hope that this now concludes the questions I need to put to you. I am most grateful for all your help.

12 August 2010
