Peter Hain admits 100,000 undeclared gifts

Peter Hain, the Work and Pensions Secretary, has admitted failing to declare more than 100,000 in donations to his campaign to be Labour deputy leader

Blaming administrative errors by staff for the breach of electoral laws, his spokesman said he had now made a full submission to the Electoral Commission.

But The Daily Telegraph can reveal that Mr Hain has also failed to enter the donations, amounting to 103,000, with the Register of Members' Interests - as required under parliamentary rules. He could now be forced to apologise and even be suspended from the House of Commons.

Such a punishment would prove highly damaging for a Cabinet minister - and would put Mr Hain's prospects of remaining in his post in serious doubt.

John Lyon, the parliamentary commissioner for standards, was said to be "aware" that Mr Hain had not abided by the four-week deadline to enter financial contributions in the register, in which MPs have to record all of their financial dealings.

As any member of the public can make a complaint about an MP's non-disclosure, the commissioner is expecting to start an investigation within days.

If he finds a case to answer, he is likely to refer the matter to the Commons standards and privileges committee.

The pressure on Mr Hain intensified yesterday after the new parliamentary standards watchdog, Sir Christopher Kelly, attacked his failure to declare his donations with the Electoral Commission.

In his first public outing since taking up his post, Sir Christopher told MPs on the public administration committee: "What happened with Peter Hain and the donations to his deputy leadership campaign I understand is being looked at by the Electoral Commission and that is absolutely the right thing to happen.

"I would guess that the committee would be concerned that, even now, not everyone appears to have understood the importance of being absolutely transparent about political donations."

The commission revealed it held a meeting with Mr Hain yesterday and he submitted a dossier relating to donations to his leadership campaign.

Staff will now check the submission for "permissibility" before making the accounts public early next week.

Mr Hain initially apologised for not declaring a 5,000 donation to the commission, blaming "administrative failings" by his campaign team. He is said to have then undertaken a personal audit, during which he uncovered more unrecorded gifts worth thousands of pounds.

The donations came from businessmen, including 10,000 from [Jewish pro-Israel Zionist] Mike Cuddy, who runs a building contractors in Wales, and also from unions, with 10,000 being donated by the GMB and 2,500 by UCAT, according to Sky News.

Gordon Brown is said to be furious with Mr Hain over the debacle.

During Prime Minister's Question Time this week, he gave the minister only lukewarm backing when he was criticised by Conservative MP Bob Spink.

Metro, "Gordon Brown condemns beleaguered Hain over incompetence in failing to declare donations", .15 January 2008
    The Prime Minister's astonishing admission came as he pleaded with watchdogs to spare Mr Hain's career.
    The Work and Pensions Secretary's failure to declare 103,000 in gifts to his deputy leadership campaign is being investigated by the Electoral Commission and the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner.
    In an extraordinary bid to rescue Mr Hain's political future, Mr Brown begged them to believe that there had been "no corruption" and "no illegal donation".
    It also emerged that multimillionaire Isaac Kaye, who donated nearly 15,000, was embroiled in a "gifts for influence" row when he was chairman of a drugs company.
    [In other words, another major "donor" to British political parties who have a long history of corruption and specialise in using bribes to buy influence and other advantages.]

The Observer, "'Think tank' that fuelled Hain's bid", 13 January 2008.
    Underwood stepped out of the shadows to declare that he was the trustee of the Progressive Policies Forum (PPF), a hitherto obscure political 'think tank' that last year gave more than 50,000 in donations and loans to Hain's campaign to become deputy leader of the Labour party.
    Of this, 5,000 came from the diamond broker, Willie Nagel, who also gave a 25,000 loan, 15,000 from the healthcare boss Isaac Kaye and 10,000 from the Welsh businessman, Michael Cuddy, whose demolition and engineering firm, Cuddy Group, carries pictures of Hain presenting its employees with awards for safety on its website.
    If Underwood, whose PR company, Clear, was awarded a contract from the government to produce a report endorsing the closure of an NHS hospital in the Tory-held seat of Hemel Hempstead, had hoped the revelation that he was the trustee would shore up the position of the Minister for Work and Pensions, he was spectacularly mistaken.

The Independent, "Mystery of the think tank that keeps its thoughts to itself", 13 January 2008.
    It is the 1 political think tank that lists a Hertfordshire solicitor as its sole director; a talking-shop with no one to speak for it; a body dedicated to progressive policies that publishes nothing and holds no conferences. It doesn't even have a website.
    But the Progressive Policies Forum (PPF) was one of the most important contributors to the ultimately unsuccessful campaign to install Peter Hain as deputy leader of the Labour Party. And it might just turn out to be the thing that ends his political career.
    A senior organiser on the campaign of one of Hain's rivals for the deputy leadership confirmed last night that raising money during the contest had been "devilishly difficult" and that they had suspected opponents of bending the rules. [When corrupt officials are caught, they seek refuge in the fact that the whole entire "democratic" political system in Britain is corrupt.] No one, however, could have foreseen the unusual route taken by Hain's team to pull in more than 50,000.
    With leading supporters of Mr Hain's campaign yesterday insisting they had known nothing about the PPF, it was left to its founder, John Underwood, a former Labour director of communications, who ran the finances for Mr Hain's campaign, to claim that all of the donors, including [Jewish Zionist] diamond dealer Willie Nagel and [Jewish Zionist] businessman Isaac Kaye, were happy with the funding arrangement.

The Guardian, "Isaac Kaye", 13 April 2002.
    Isaac Kaye, the Labour donor at the helm of a drug company raided by police investigating an alleged 400m rip-off of the NHS, converted to Blairism after supporting South Africa's Afrikaner-led National party.
The seventysomething multi-millionaire moved to Britain in 1985, took Irish citizenship and salted away a small fortune in a Channel Islands trust fund from a US business deal.
    Kaye is the chairman of IVAX Pharmaceuticals UK, the health service's biggest supplier of generic drugs and one of six firms suspected of being involved in a price fixing cartel to push up prices charged to the NHS. IVAX denies any wrongdoing and the Labour party has declined to comment on its relationship with Kaye.
    Now living in Mayfair, he made no secret of his admiration for Tony Blair by spending 5,000 in 1997 and 1998 on tickets for Labour gala dinners and donating 100,000 to the party in 1999. He also gave 10,000 to the London mayoral campaign of Frank Dobson, the former Labour health secretary.
Kaye was was caught up in a "gifts for influence" scandal in South Africa during the early 1980s amid claims that doctors were being rewarded with everything from cars and TVs to swimming pool equipment and chandeliers for prescribing drugs made by his then firm. He denied any impropriety, saying the giving of presents was not an inducement but an appreciation. Six years ago his company in Britain was censured for offering mountain bikes, Marks & Spencer vouchers and other "unacceptable inducements" to doctors and chemists.

JUF, "How to lose weight and not go hungry", 18 July 2007.
    The Kaye Innovation Awards at the Hebrew University have been awarded annually since 1994. Isaac Kaye of England, a prominent industrialist in the pharmaceutical industry, established the awards to encourage faculty, staff, and students of the Hebrew University to develop innovative methods and inventions with good commercial potential which will benefit the university and society.

Trevi Health, "Team", 2007.
    ... Mr. Kaye has also been active in promoting Israel-based technology and innovation.  He was a co-founder of Israel Healthcare Ventures, a leading Israel-based venture capital firm, and also established the Kaye Innovation Awards in order to encourage and recognize technological achievements at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

Haaretz, "I coulda been a diplomat", 25 June 2007.
    When Willie Nagel is asked about the value of his assets, he replies with an old adage he heard from his father: "If someone asks you if you're rich, don't say yes or no. If you say yes, you may need a loan from him one day and then you won't get it. If you say no, it can bring on the evil eye." Nagel, 82, is a renowned international diamond broker who is also known in the Ramat Gan exchange. His personal assets are estimated at tens of millions of dollars. In addition to his diamond business, he holds an 8 percent stake in Channel 2 television franchisee Keshet and has business interests in both Israel and in London, where he spends most of his time. However, in deference to his father's wishes, he absolutely refuses to specify where his assets are and how much they are worth.
    Nagel relates how he used his business to develop personal relationships with British politicians, including the "Iron Lady," then Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher. Nagel was disappointed with her successor, John Major, and switched his support to Tony Blair. In 2002 Queen Elizabeth II made him Companion of the Most Distinguished Order of St. Michael & St. George for for his help in improving Anglo-German relations. He is also proud of honors awarded by the governments of Germany, Belgium and Romania.


Telegraph, "David Abrahams hints at frequent meetings with PM", 30 November 2007.
    David Abrahams, the secret donor who is facing a police investigation, suggested yesterday that he had met Gordon Brown as many times as he had "eaten porridge" in the morning.
    Labour at war over party donations
    Earlier this week, Mr Brown said he "no recollection of any conversations" about donations with the property tycoon, but was sure he had "probably met him on occasion".
    The claims came as a new photograph emerged of Mr Abrahams together with Peter Watt, who resigned as party secretary this week when the scandal emerged.
    The two are pictured smiling next to each other at a Jewish museum dinner, Mr Abrahams holding a glass of red wine and Mr Watt a flute of champagne.
    According to insiders, Mr Abrahams was politically ambitious and enjoyed mixing with people in the higher echelons of the Labour Party and Jewish society.

The Independent, " The Labour party game", 29 November 2007.
    It emerged that Mr Abrahams was a member of the "1,000 Club" of Labour donors who were regularly "squeezed" for cash by the party's former chief fundraiser, Lord Levy. Mr Abrahams said he had been made to feel like a "serial criminal" when he was in fact a "serial philanthropist".
