Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner
for Standards from Rose Turner, Lloyds TSB
COUNCILLOR M KAMAL
I am writing in answer to your letter dated
4 October 2000, may I first apologise for the time taken to reply.
The main problem being the Melton Road branch where Councillor
Kamal first opened his account, merged, we therefore had great
difficulty in locating the appropriate account number and microfiche,
luckily they had not been destroyed as we should only have kept
them for 10 years.
Looking at Councillor Kamal's statements we
have been able to trace a standing order to Leicester East Labour
Party starting 28 October 1988 for £16.00 and then £8.00
monthly. The final payment was on 2 January 1990. We are unable
to provide you with the beneficiary's details as the records at
that time were not computerised and were destroyed after five
years. Please find enclosed statements for 1987 and 1988 on Councillor
Kamal's account as requested. I can supply later statements if
I hope this is of help. Should you require any
further information please do not hesitate to contact me.
