Select Committee on Standards and Privileges Seventh Report

Annex C

Letter to Mr Nigel Griffiths MP

from the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards

I have received a letter from Mrs Lait in which she alleges that you have used your constituency office during election campaigns. Mrs Lait acknowledges that you have apologised for this in relation to the 2001 General Election but says that you have used it for political purposes on other occasions and she raises the question as to whether financial reparation is due.

I enclose a copy of her letter.

I would be grateful for your response to these allegations and any comments you wish to make so that I may decide whether any investigation is required.

You may prefer to discuss this matter with me in the first instance and if so perhaps your office would contact mine so that we can arrange to meet, or alternatively you may prefer to talk to me on the telephone.

I look forward to hearing from you.
