Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Second Report

Annex 127A

Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards from Digby Brown, solicitors


We refer to the above and confirm that Ms Hilliard has now obtained information from BT Cellnet in relation to her mobile account.

We enclose for your attention a copy of a letter confirming that the invoices for the period December 1998 to March 1999 are no longer available. We enclose the accounts for the period April 1999 to May 1999. There are some calls to the House of Commons though Miss Hilliard does not recollect whether these were to Dr Reid. We would remind you that our client has consistently pointed out that Dr Reid invariably contacted her.

We should also say that our client requested the appropriate bills some time ago. It took some weeks for BT Cellnet to provide the invoices and it was only at the end of August that the position in relation to the main part of our client`s employment with Dr Reid was clarified.
