Letter to Mr Keith Vaz MP from Mr Mark
Manley, Brabners, Solicitors
Thank you for your letter dated 3rd October.
The penultimate paragraph makes reference to my having
given you an undertaking that you would not be involved. With
respect, I gave no such undertaking. I did say that I did not
see any reason why you should become involved and I did confirm
that I was content that the conversation I was having with you
related to legal proceedings and as such was covered by privilege
(for example for the purposes of data protection principles).
I confirm that the contents of our conversation will not be disclosed
to any third party.
