Letter to Mr John Maxton MP from the Parliamentary
Commissioner for Standards
Thank you for your letter of 6 April which must have
crossed with mine to you.
I am sorry to tell you that I have not concluded
my enquiries because an interview has had to be postponed because
of illness and some material which I require is still outstanding.
I am therefore writing to you to ask you if your
request still stands to see, before we meet, any information which
is at variance with that which you have given me.
I would be keen to go ahead with our meeting on Monday
17 April at 17.00 hours so that I may clarify my understanding
of your statement to ensure my report is accurate. I would then
arrange a further meeting with you as soon as I have all the information
to hand, so that I may put to you any of it which is at variance
with the information you have provided. As I informed you some
time ago, I listened to the tapes in Mr Nelson`s possession. Part
of my enquiry has been to try to establish whether they in any
way constitute a valid record.
Perhaps you would let me know whether you are happy
to proceed with the meeting on Monday 17 April on this basis.
PS. This is the letter I mentioned to you during
our telephone conversation on 10th April.
