Thank you for your letter of 1st July, which we received on 4 July 2001, in response to my letter of June 19th 2001.

I also enclose a copy of a statement made by Mrs Gresty to Ms Eggington dated 25 June 2001.

b)   Property Information provided by the BBC and Sunday Telegraph

I incorporated this information in the schedule relating to property interests which I sent to you with my letter of 19 June 2001. (List attached of property documents)

I also enclose a copy of your letter to me, following Mr Lansley's complaint, dated 26 March 2001.

Sir Gordon Downey's address is given in Who's Who: 137 Whitehall Court, London SW1A 2EP.

If, at any time, it is helpful to you I shall be pleased to deal with Mr Bindman acting on your behalf that I suggest you sign correspondence to me if at all possible.
