letter to Lesley Quinn from the Parliamentary
Commissioner for Standards
I am investigating allegations that, during the election
campaign for the Scottish Parliament, Dr Reid and Maxton deployed
staff who were paid from Westminster allowances on the Labour
Party campaign. I would like to see you to obtain information
required by my enquiry and would be grateful if you would telephone
me at your earliest convenience to arrange to meet me, either
here or in Scotland.
May I thank you in advance for your help.
