Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Second Report

Annex 48

File note by the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

Mr John Maxton
3 April 2000
Telephone call.

Telephone call from John Maxton, he was not willing to see me unless he has a letter from me setting out the evidence. I said that I would happily write to him and put before him any statements which were at variance with his before we met, so that he had the opportunity to consider them and then have a discussion with me about what he wanted to say to me. We agreed 5pm on 17 April so long I was able to consider the evidence I had, complete my interviews and write to him, otherwise we would arrange a later date.

He said he was concerned that we were asking a student to fund her fare to London prior to coming. I said that if this was difficult for the student we would of course either purchase the ticket for her or provide her the funds so that she could purchase the ticket and give us the receipts. He said he would pass on the information to Suzanne Hilliard.
