Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner
for Standards from Ms Eileen Eggington QPM
Thank you for your letter dated 16th October 2001.
I am very happy to answer your questions and, in
an effort to be as open as possible, I have prepared a seven-page
statement with attachments. These are enclosed.
You will understand that I am particularly concerned
about the complaint that I telephoned Mr Vaz's mother in Leicester.
If Mr Vaz has made this complaint about me in good faith, somebody,
presumably a female, must be impersonating me. Should this women
be identified I would wish to consider taking legal action against
her. Also, Mr Vaz has made an allegation of harassment against
me to the police. I should like to know when and where Mr Vaz
reported this matter. During my thirty-six years service in the
Metropolitan Police Service I gained a reputation for complete
integrity. I am not happy that Mr Vaz appears to be trying to
undermine my unsullied reputation.
I hope that you have found my response helpful and
not too tedious. Please let me know if I can help you further.
