Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Eighth Report

Annex F


Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

from Mr Michael Fallon MP

Thank you for your letter of 22nd March.

Speech on Budget Resolutions, 23rd March 2000 (cols. 1153-1159)

I did declare my interests at col. 1153 (attached).[22] My comments about the effect of the budget on business were entirely general.

Speech on the Address, 24th November 1999 (cols. 673-676)

I was not a director of Bannatyne Fitness Ltd at that time.

In the passage of time Mr Cryer complains, I referred twice to small businesses in my constituency (cols. 674, 675): Just Learning Ltd is not a small business and does not operate in my constituency. Nonetheless, I did not declare my registered interest in Just Learning Ltd, and I apologise for this oversight.

Please let me know if I can assist further.
