Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Appendices to the Minutes of Evidence


Letter to Councillor Piara Singh Clair from the Clerk of the Committee on Standards and Privileges

The Committee on Standards and Privileges has asked me to write to you with reference to your recent correspondence with Ms Elizabeth Filkin, the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards.

The Committee needs to have further information about a donation to the Labour Party in the form of a cheque for £1,000 from B S Attwall & Co dated 31 December 1992, which was transferred to the payee's account on 8 January 1993. It is not clear to the Committee whether or not this cheque was paid into the Leicester East Constituency Labour Party's account. I would therefore be grateful if you could provide me with confirmation from the Constituency Labour Party's bank that this cheque was in fact paid into the Constituency Labour Party's account.

The Committee has been given power by the House of Commons to require witnesses to attend to give evidence and to require the production of documents.

I would be grateful for a reply as soon as possible.

I am sending a copy of this letter to you at the City Council's offices.
