Letter to Mr Graeme Peene from the Parliamentary
Commissioner for Standards
Thank you for your letter of 8th February 2001 with
details of the company in question, documents from Companies House
and the letter from Mr Keith Vaz to you of 14th April 1999.
You say that you believe Mr Vaz had an interest in
the Russian Butter Export Refund Investigation / M Ltd and you
draw my attention to Mr S, a director of Skillshare Africa and
to Mr Vaz's directorship of the same company for the period 30
May 1992 to 13 July 1992. You also include lists of directors
for Dr. L M Singhvi Foundation and The Crime Concern Trust Ltd.
Please would you let me know what connection you believe there
was between Mr Vaz and Mr S or either of them with M Ltd. In addition,
please provide me with information about any interest Mr Vaz may
have had in M Ltd. If there are other connections you feel you
should bring to my attention concerning the directorships listed,
I would be grateful to hear of them.
Please would you also let me know whether you reported
the conversation at Mr Vaz's surgery to any one at the time and,
if so, to whom.
Thank you for your further help on this matter.
12 February 2001
