Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Third Report

Annex 72

Letter from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards from Mr John W Thomas

  Thank you for your letter of the 13th, I note that your investigation is shortly to be concluded.

  However you will recall that at the time of your first letter to me we subsequently spoke on the telephone. In that conversation you informed me that your investigation was only concerned with Members of Parliamentary and possible breaches of the Code of Conduct relating to Members of Parliament. You also indicated that it was not part of your function to raise questions relating to the internal workings of the Labour Party.

  It would be helpful therefore if you would kindly let me know the immediate relevance of the information you seek so that I can properly understand the basis for your questions.

  I look forward to hearing from you.
