HC Deb 20 May 1999 vol 331 c1226 1.13 pm
Mrs. Teresa Gorman (Billericay)

I rise to make an apology to the House.

The Select Committee on Standards and Privileges has investigated a complaint against me and found that my entry in the Register of Members' Interests was inadequate and incomplete. I fully accept the way in which the complaint was investigated and the Committee's conclusions. I am most grateful to the Committee for giving me the opportunity to answer its questions in person. The omissions in my entry were due to an oversight on my part. I accept the Committee's findings. I make no excuses, and I offer my most sincere apologies to the House.

Madam Speaker

Thank you, Mrs. Gorman; the House is most appreciative.
