Dear Enquiries,

Thank you for your kind reply, much appreciated. You never supplied me with a list of Shareholders. Shrouded in secrecy was in relation to the Official Secrets Act. Out of curiosity are you still bound by it? Is the official response for promissory notes, 3 business days.

Bank of England History is so facinating, do you have a 100 million pound note? There I go again, your like chocolate, I want another bite LOL !!

Yours sincerely,

John Paffvett
