Dear Mr Levi

 

I write further to my response which was sent to you by email on 21
October 2016.

 

I note that response was sent with a ‘draft’ watermark and so, for the
sake of good order, I now attach the same response without the watermark
so that you can be sure it is my final response.

 

I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.

 

Kind regards
