Dear Mr Grey,

I refer to your email dated 19th August in which you you give confirmation that the minutes of the July 2010 board meeting have now been published.

On checking, I find that this is not the case despite a previous assurance from both the board and your chief executive that, in future, minutes will be published in a timely fashion (your CE quotes within 2-3 weeks of the meeting).

I would therefore reiterate my request that you provide me with a copy of the minutes. together with "all reports, sub committee minutes and other documents mentioned in those minutes".

Yours sincerely,

Allan Richards
