Letter to Mr Keith Vaz MP from the Parliamentary
Commissioner for Standards
Thank you for your letter of 3 October 2001 which
we received on 11 October and the information about properties.
The numbers refer to your paragraphs:
89, 91. I am in the process of analysing the
information you have provided and will write to you during next
week to deal with any outstanding matters. I hope to be able to
provide you with a likely timetable in my letter, though I must
warn you that I have experienced serious delays in obtaining information
from some witnesses, some of which I am still awaiting.
87. May I confirm what I said during our
telephone conversation earlier this week. No-one acts on my behalf
other than staff from this office. You told me that Miss Eggington
had indicated to your mother that she was acting on my behalf
and you asked me to look into that. You said you would write to
me about the incident so that I have the facts. I would be grateful
if you would do so.
90. With reference to your paragraph 35.
I understand both from you and the Registrar of the University
that you had spoken to each other and that you had said that you
did not want to pursue this matter in any way. If this is not
the case perhaps you would give me information on the questions
you are considering tabling so that I can respond. You also said
that you had told the solicitors, Brabner Holden, that you did
not wish to be involved in any way with * * * to which your paragraph
You have overlooked my request in my letter of 27
September for a copy of your letter of 6 August which I have never
received. Perhaps you would fax it to me by return.
