Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner
for Standards from Finers Stephens Innocent, Solicitors
We thank you for your letter of 27 June received
by fax late this afternoon. We are pleased that we have finally
had disclosure of your interests with Sir Peter Soulsby. In the
circumstances, we shall be taking our client's instructions as
to whether or not he feels that the proceedings are thus far too
tainted, that he should not deal with you.
We note, and further to our first letter of
today's date that you have a taped record of your interview with
Sir Peter Soulsby. Please would you disclose the substance of
this, particularly the date on which Sir Peter asserts to have
had the conversation with Mr Kapasi (as referred to in your letter).
Please would you also advise us whether or not you have compared
the Sunday Times transcript with the Sunday Times
As a precaution and to abide future events,
we have copied this letter to Sir Robert Sheldon.
27 June 2000
