Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Second Report

Annex 28

Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards from the Rt Hon Dr John Reid MP

There are two matters I wish to raise with you. Firstly, I have not as yet received an acknowledgement of receipt of my submission. I trust this has in fact been received by you. Secondly, I am interested to know when I might receive a response to the arguments and information contained in the submission. As you have undertaken to provide me with your draft report for my consideration prior to publication an indication of when this might be received would be helpful.

In this connection I enclose a copy of an article on page 2 of today`s Daily Record (Monday 17th July). I assume the article is incorrect in suggesting my case will not be dealt with until the end of October. I am sure you agree that would be an unacceptable delay. Please confirm my assumptions in this regard (unless of course they are wrong).
