Tony Baldry MP
Sunday 28 February 2010
In our article "Tory MP accused over links to Nigerian politician" 14 February 2010, we reported that Tony Baldry MP had "lobbied" on behalf of a Nigerian politician James Ibori in writing a letter to the Foreign Secretary and others and that his involvement amounted to "political lobbying". We now accept that Mr Baldry did not lobby on behalf of Mr Ibori, the letter was written in his capacity as a barrister, instructed by solicitors, who was acting for Mr Ibori. The letter was not written in Mr Baldry's capacity as a MP, and we accept that there was no breach of the Parliamentary rule about Lobbying for Reward or Consideration. We apologise to Mr Baldry for suggesting that he acted improperly as an MP.'
