Joint Party/Treasurer's Statement

Joint Statement from the UK Independence Party Leadership and Treasurer
16th May 2003

Leadership Statement

We would like to make it clear to all of you that at no stage in the recent dispute was there any question concerning the Party Treasurer, John de Roeck's probity and efficiency which has been exemplary.

We are delighted to inform you that John de Roeck's tenure as Party Treasurer has been extended to May 2004 when, in the natural order of events, it comes up for review under the Party's constitution.

The UKIP is growing fast which creates a concomitant expansion at Head Office requiring increased expenditure. We are very pleased to let you know, that the Party centrally has raised sufficient additional funds to significantly boost our cash flow.

There were matters of disagreement between the Party leadership and the Party Treasurer that gave rise to the recent dispute. In order to ensure the efficient working relationship between the leadership and Treasurer their roles have been redefined.

Roger Knapman Party Leader
David Lott - Party Chairman
Derek Clark - Party Secretary

Party Treasurers Statement

I am very pleased that that this dispute over my position is now behind us and that I will resume my duties as Party Treasurer with full confidence in the leadership team.

My first and urgent task will be to work hard to develop a more effective method of reaching financial decisions. I will also help to define the financial responsibilities of those involved in those decisions.

I regret that my determination to enforce Party financial policy contributed to the difficult situation that arose between us and I appreciate that some may have felt that I was being inflexible.

I look forward to being part of a dynamic team in the run up to the European election.

John de Roeck
Party Treasurer

End of statements

This statement will be posted out from Head Office today by first class mail by Michael Harvey to all the addressees to which his previous message was sent.
