Dear David Sinclair,

Minutes of the 20 July 1999 POCL Board meeting state:

‘Ministers were meeting on 21 July to discuss Horizon and it would be important to ensure that the Post Office Minister, Ian McCartney was fully aware of the Board’s concerns. This would best be communicated through a letter from the Chief Executive [John Roberts]’.

Please can you disclose the letter which was sent to Ian McCartney from POCL to which these minutes refer. Please can you also identify all recipients of this communication.

Yours sincerely,

Eleanor Shaikh
