Letter to Mr Arthur Price-Jones from Mr
L Goldberg, Head of Audit, Leceister City Council
I attach the cutting I referred to during our conversation
earlier today. You will see that as at 7 September 1987, arrangements
to recruit a replacement for Keith Vaz were in hand. Given that
he would almost certainly have been on one month's notice, it
could be inferred that Mr Vaz remained on the payroll of Leicester
Advice and Information Services Ltd until at least the end of
As far as I can recall, Mr Vaz continued to be employed
by the company after he was elected in June 1987. The duration
of that employment however, I cannot recall.
In view of the fact that the account files held by
the City Treasurer, in his capacity as Company treasurer, and
yourself, in your capacity as Company Secretary, are no longer
in existence, the only possible route by which verification of
the duration of Mr Vaz's employment could be obtained would be
through the Inland Revenue.
It was nice to speak to you again after all this
time. I trust you are keeping well.
