Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Second Report

Annex 99

Letter to Mr Chris Winslow from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

You may be aware that I am investigating allegations that while you were employed as Westminster staff, paid by the Fees Office at the House of Commons, you were deployed on the Labour Party campaign for the Scottish Parliament election.

I would be grateful to receive the following information from you to assist my enquiries:

1.  During the period April 1998-December 1999 who were your employers?

2.  Please specify whether you worked full time or part time for each employer and give the contracted hours.

3.  Did you ever work on the Labour Party campaign during hours you were paid from the Fees Office? If so please give details.

4.  During the period April 1998-December 1999 did you ever work full time on the Labour Party campaign?

5.  During the campaign how many hours a day on average did you work for the Labour Party?

6.  Any other information which you feel will give me a complete picture of the arrangements or which adds to your replies.

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.
