Your Ref: IRU9/874

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, the following links did not work. I am also surprised by the amount that you have locked the pdf document you sent so that I needed to type out the complete links instead of just being able to click on them.

The links in question are:

http://www.opsi.gov.uk/RevisedStatutes/A...

and

http://www.ico.qov.uk/upload/documents/l...

Would I be correct in assuming that question 1 which you did not answer "Is the currency in circulation a product of the Bank of England?", can be found in one of the links you provided?

Yours sincerely,

John Smith

I am sorry that you experienced difficulties with two of the links we provided. I have checked that they are correct and so I have reproduced them below in 'clickable' form.

In regard to your question one, all the currency in [UK] circulation is not the product of the Bank of England, as was explained in paragraph three of our letter.
