§ 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.
