Letter to the Lord Paul, Caparo Group Ltd, from the Clerk of the Committee on Standards and Privileges

The Committee on Standards and Privileges is at present considering a report from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards on complaints against Mr Keith Vaz.

Mr Vaz's entry in the Register of Members' Interests as at 31 October 1997 indicates that he received contributions to his election campaign expenses from several people, of whom you are one.

The Committee would be grateful if you could provide the following information in relation to your contribution:

(i)  How much did you give Mr Vaz towards his election expenses?

(ii)  If the contribution was made by cheque, please would you let me know the date, the cheque number and to whom the cheque was payable.

(iii)  If the contribution was made in cash, please would you let me know to whom it was paid and the date it was paid.

The Committee would be most grateful for an early reply to this letter.
