File Note by the Parliamentary Commissioner
VAZ, 11 JULY
2000, TELEPHONE CALL
Mr Gratrix said he had now searched his attics
and found that a cheque for £250 had been made by Mr Attwall
towards the premises fund. He had also found a copy of a letter
thanking Mr Attwall for hospitality for him and Keith Vaz when
they visited Mr Attwall's factory. He believes this money would
have gone into the 50 Club. I asked him why he called it the 50
Club and some people called it the 100 Club and he said because
it had started out as 100 Club for 100 supporters but they had
had to lower their sights. The idea behind the club was that it
would help with running the office for Keith Vaz and the constituency.
Mr Gratrix said he might have correspondence about the use of
money to support the premises at Uppingham Road and if so he would
let me have it.
