Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Third Report

Annex 149

Letter to Finers Stephens Innocent, Solicitors, from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

  Thank you for your fax of 21 June 2000.

  The only matter outstanding is the arrangement for me to meet Mr Kapasi. I shall be happy to discuss any other points you, or he, wish to raise on that occasion.

  I have replied to the concerns about Sir Peter Soulsby in my letter to Mr Kapasi of today (21 June) which was copied to you.

  I assure you that I have no wish to drive any wedge between you and your client, but as I had not had the responses from you or him as promised it was necessary that I inform Mr Kapasi, as it is he who had responsibilities to Parliament and is a witness to my enquiry.

  I would be grateful for your assistance in arranging the meeting with Mr Kapasi.

21 June 2000
