Witnesses

  • Baroness Dean of Thornton-le-Fylde
  • Sir Hayden Phillips GCB

Dr Tony Wright MP, PASC Chair, said:

"I announced last week [4 March] that the Committee would be holding a one-off evidence session on propriety and peerages, to explore the process through which Michael Ashcroft’s undertaking of 23 March 2000 to take up 'permanent residence' in the UK as a condition for his introduction into the House of Lords came to be interpreted in subsequent dialogue with the Government as 'long-term residence', with likely consequent tax implications."
