Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Third Report

Annex D

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

I wrote to you on 19 April 2001 asking for information to enable me to decide whether further inquiries warranted. My office contacted you on 27 April and 4 May 2001 to ask when I would expect a reply but as you gave no information I reported this to the Standards and Privileges Committee yesterday.

I am now writing to request an urgent reply to my letter, at the latest by 10 am Monday next 14 May 2001. I should tell you that if I receive no response from you I will have no alternative but to investigate the complaint and report in due course to the Standards and Privileges Committee.

I hope to hear from you shortly.

9 May 2001
