Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Third Report

Annex 66

Letter to Mr Brian Brown from the Parliamentary Commission for Standards

  You may be aware from newspaper articles that I am investigating allegations that Mr Tony Baldry and Mr Keith Vaz may have breached the Code of Conduct and Rules for Members of Parliament.

  I am writing to you to request your assistance with my enquiry.

  Please would you let me know whether you were present at any discussions, meetings or other transactions between Mr Sarosh Zaiwalla and either Mr Vaz or Mr Baldry. In particular were you involved in, or witness to, any financial transaction or payment from Mr Zaiwalla to either Mr Vaz or Mr Baldry?

  You may prefer to discuss these matters in the first instance and if so please would you telephone this office to arrange a convenient time for a telephone discussion or meeting.

  May I thank you in advance for your help.
