Dear Mr James
COMMUNICATION FROM INTELLIGENCE AND SECURITY COMMITTEE
I have heard today from the Intelligence and Security Committee made up of a cross-party membership of UK Members of Parliament appointed by the Prime Minister. As you will be aware, under the provisions of the Intelligence Services Act of 1994, the Committee has parliamentary oversight responsibility for the Secret Intelligence Service, GCHQ, and the Security Service.
The Clerk to the Intelligence and Security Committee, Mr Alistair Corbett, has contacted me on behalf of the Chairman of the Committee, the Right Honourable Ann Taylor MP regarding the concerns I have expressed about Hakluyt. A copy of the email she received is posted on the website shell2004.com. I am advised by Mr Corbett that the Chairman will be raising this matter with the other Committee members.
Consequently if you intend to answer the questions raised in my recent letter I would respectfully recommend that you do so as a matter of urgency so that your response could be given to the Committee. In fact I will be supplying the Committee with further information on Monday and would be happy to include any such response. Of course you are free to contact them direct at 70 Whitehall, London SW1A 2AS.
I am willing to provide you with my home telephone number on a confidential basis providing that Hakluyt undertakes not to supply the number to your client, Shell/Royal Dutch Shell Group.
