Letter to Baroness Prashar from Lord Harris
of Haringey, Monday 26 January 2009
Dear Baroness Prashar,
I am writing to you in your capacity as Chairman
of the Committee of Privileges Sub-Committee on Lords' Interests.
I was not named in yesterday's articles in The Sunday Times.
However, as I was approached by the under-cover journalists in
question, I feel it would be appropriate to give evidence to any
inquiry your Sub-Committee may conduct.
I am confident that I did not breach any of
the House's rules, nor did I offer to do so. Nevertheless, as
I was the subject of the journalists' deception and attempted
entrapment, it is clearly important that you have the opportunity
to question me.
(Lord Harris of Haringey)
