Letter to Mrs Jacqui Lait MP
from the Parliamentary Commissioner for
Further to my letter of 5 November 2001 I have now
made preliminary enquiries into the matter you raised.
I have had a detailed response from Mr Griffiths
along with a copy of a statement he agreed with the Fees Office
for publication and I attach copies for your information.
As you will see from his letter of response Mr Griffiths
has provided information covering the points you raised. Unless
you have information which is at variance with that provided by
Mr Griffiths I am not of the view that any investigation is warranted
in this instance.
I would be grateful if you would let me know as soon
as possible if this deals with the concern you raised or if you
wish to put anything further to me.
I am copying this letter to Mr Griffiths for information.
