Letter to the Parliamentary Commissioner
from Mr Robert Syms MP
Following our meeting and my letter of 26th March
2001 I have been looking through my speeches, interventions and
questions to make sure that there are no other instances I have
failed to declare an interest.
I have found one more occasion which was a question
I tabled to the DETR (155297) on Cash Retentions in the Building
Industry which was answered on the 23rd March 2001 where I omitted
to tick the [R] box.
I thought it best to bring this matter to your attention
and hope that you will be in no doubt that I am dealing with the
complaint in a honest and open manner.

Attachment: See Hansard, 23 March 2001,
col. 397W (Mr Syms).
