Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Second Report

Annex 35

Letter to Mr John Maxton MP from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

Thank you for your letter of 2 February. I hope you received my telephone message but I thought I should reply in writing as well.

The complainant is Mr Dean Nelson, copy of his signed letter attached. Mr Nelson has provided the information in this letter and has informed me that he has taped interviews which corroborate his allegations. I have asked him for that evidence.

I look forward to hearing from you.

(I dictated the above yesterday and have now received your second letter. I took up this point with Mr Nelson as soon as I received his e-mail and he informed me that he was the complainant, not The Observer.)

4 February 2000
