Prime Serve Tony Blair requested previous Treasury Specialist Sir Anthony Hammond to revive the request after Mr Mandelson uncovered records which he accepted cleared him of any doubt that he attempted to impact the Home Office to allow a English identification to Indian head honcho Srichand Hinduja

But Sir Anthony’s second report, discharged today, expressed that the new material did not induce him to change his judgment that it was “likely” that Mr Mandelson called junior Home Office serve Mike O’Brien about the application in 1998

Sir Anthony rehashed his finding that not one or the other Mr Mandelson nor Mr O’Brien had acted with shamefulness of any sort over the case

In a statement, Bringing down Road indicated that in the event that the new reports had been accessible at the time, Mr Mandelson might not have had to resign

Mr Blair’s official representative said today: “The Prime Serve invites this extra report from Sir Anthony Hammond which looks at pertinent records found consequent to his unique inquiry

“It underlines once more that there was no impropriety, no wrongdoing, no visas for favours

“It ought to be recalled that the request was set up in the to start with case to look at a charge which was commensurate to defilement – in particular that visas were in impact exchanged for sponsorship for the Dome

“Both reports from Sir Anthony Hammond appear that this charge is completely without any establishment what’s more, that those who questioned Dwindle Mandelson’s word were off-base to do so

“We have continuously said that the reason why Dwindle Mandelson cleared out government was since of the obfuscate that emerged as a result of the general dealing with of this issue at the point when it progressed toward becoming an issue of political controversy, Or maybe than the substance of the charges, which have once more been appeared to be completely baseless

“It is a feel sorry for that the reports presently accessible were not accessible at the time either of Dwindle Mandelson’s abdication or, on the other hand at the time of the unique Hammond inquiry, since they make it clear past any question that Dwindle Mandelson acted altogether properly, what’s more, that the issue was taken care of in a appropriate way by pastors what’s more, officials

“Had the records been accessible at the time, the picture of occasions would have been far clearer what’s more, less open to misinterpretation, the succession of occasions counting the abdication may well have been different

“But they were not what’s more, as Dwindle Mandelson has himself made clear in later days, he has no goal or, on the other hand want to return to government ”

In a statement, Mr Mandelson said Sir Anthony what’s more, Mr Blair had “fully cleared my name”, including that he needed presently to get on with his life “outside government”

The Hartlepool MP said: “I welcome the articulation from No 10 that the arrangement of occasions counting my abdication might well have been unique in the event that these newly-found reports had been accessible to the Prime Minister

“If we had had them at the time of the controversy, things would have been dealt with better by all concerned, counting myself

“Sir Anthony Hammond says in his report that the reports ‘reinforce my judgment that Mr Mandelson was concerned both to act, what’s more, to be seen to act, with propriety’ I am appreciative for this

“The new records affirm that: I was adjust to state that this matter had been dealt with by my private office; I did not intercede to impact any choice over a identification for SP Hinduja; I was completely mindful of the legitimacy of the matter what’s more, concurred with my private secretary the proper course of activity to take

“In the event, in the days driving up to my constrained resignation, I did not have an moment memory of all that had happened two-and-a-half a long time before, in this manner contributing to the confusion

“I am thankful that Sir Anthony Hammond what’s more, the Prime Serve have completely cleared my name which is all I ever wished what’s more, I need to close this miserable part what’s more, get on with my life outside government ”

Sir Anthony said that the phone conversation, regardless of whether it took put or, on the other hand not, was “intrinsically insignificant” what’s more, had little bearing on his judgment on Mr Mandelson’s conduct in the Hinduja affair

But it was perplexity inside the Government over regardless of whether or, on the other hand not Mr Mandelson had talked to Mr O’Brien about Hinduja – who was afterward to support the Thousand years Vault – which driven to the Hartlepool MP’s takeoff from the Bureau in January 2001

The new reports found by Mr Mandelson in harvest time last year comprise of notes traded with his private secretaries following Mr Hinduja’s approach to him for offer assistance with his application for naturalisation

Sir Anthony found that “the new reports do not influence my unique conclusion that both Mr Mandelson what’s more, Mr O’Brien carried on appropriately all through their contribution in Mr SP Hinduja’s intrigue in what’s more, re-application for naturalization as a English citizen

“If anything, they fortify my judgment that Mr Mandelson was concerned both to act what’s more, to be seen to act with propriety

“These reports too appear that Mr Hinduja’s enquiries were handled principally by the Private Secretaries in the Home Office what’s more, Bureau Office ”

On the question of the telephone call to Mr O’Brien, he said: “It is still not conceivable to reach any firm conclusions about the contacts which took put between Mr Mandelson what’s more, Mr O’Brien

“Although the new material does not give any bolster for the presence of a phone discussion between them, it does not induce me that I can modify my unique judgment about the probability that such a phone discussion took place ”

A representative for the Bureau Office said: “Sir Anthony Hammond will not be remarking on his report, which is distributed today

“Everything which he wishes to say on this matter is contained in the report itself ”

Mr Mandelson’s acquiescence from the Bureau in January 2001 came some time recently the culmination of the unique Hammond request last March, what’s more, was not a result of the previous Treasury Solicitor’s findings

The unique Hammond request cleared Mr Mandelson of any impropriety, yet cleared out a question stamp hanging over the key point of regardless of whether he called Mr O’Brien

Hammond acknowledged Mr Mandelson’s confirm that he had “no recollection” of calling Mr O’Brien about Mr Hinduja who later, with his brothers, given £1 million to the Thousand years Dome, for which he had responsibility

But Hammond finished up it was “likely” Mr Mandelson had made the call

The starting report found that the Hindujas were conceded their identifications fairly
