Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Second Report

Annex 150

Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards from Mr John Rafferty

Thank you for your letter of 11 February 2000.

I was engaged by the Labour Party on a consultancy basis to co-ordinate the Scottish general election campaign. This engagement commenced on 12th January 1999 and terminated on May 6th 1999. The scope of my work specifically excluded responsibility for the employment or management of Labour Party staff. Therefore I have no knowledge of any matters pertaining to the employment dates or terms of the individuals mentioned in your letter or any other member of the Labour Party staff.

I am sorry I cannot help further but if you need to get in touch with me to clarify any matter please contact me on — — — as I am frequently away from home on business.
