Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Second Report

Annex 27

Response of the Rt Hon Dr John Reid MP to Complaint received from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards dated 27 January 2000 and Questions put to Dr Reid by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards dated 19 May 2000


Close and proper analysis of the statements provided reveals neither any established case of wrongdoing by Dr Reid nor any prima facie case. As the statements provided deal with only those matters where there is an apparent conflict with Dr Reid`s evidence it is supposed that the PCS has other sources of evidence which may support Dr Reid`s position. It is not known what these might be. What is clear is that the principle persons on whom the complainer has relied do not reliably support the complaint or indeed any variation of it.
