Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Third Report

Annex 11

Letter to Mr Keith Vaz MP from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

  I have today received a complaint from Mr Andrew Milne, copy attached, alleging that you were given £2,000 by Mr S R Zaiwalla in 1994 but that you did not register it. He also says he believes Mr Zaiwalla made other payments to you which were not registered.

  Mr Milne also alleges that after the General Election you agreed to use your influence to stop an investigation by the Inland Revenue of Mr Zaiwalla's tax affairs.

  I would be grateful for your response to these allegations and any information you wish to put before me. If you would prefer to discuss these matters perhaps you would telephone this office to arrange a convenient time.
