The Conservative Party co-chairman Baroness Warsi has written to the Prime Minister explaining why her business relationship with Abid Hussain, a community activist who helped organise her official trip to Pakistan, was not declared. She writes:
I did not recognise, at the point that this visit was arranged, a need to disclose to my officials and the High Commission that Abid Hussain and I have a common business interest as minority shareholders in a small food company ... I sincerely regret that I did not consider the significance of this relationship with Mr Hussain when the arrangements for the visit were being made ... I am sorry. I regret that this failure may have caused embarrassment to the Government.
