Dear Mr Pugh

Thank you for your prompt reply. I should like to ask one short supplementary question related to your response, if I may.

You state that Mr Hooper was advising in an unofficial capacity as far as Warwickshire PCT are concerned, and that this was not a secondment but a "contribution to a national workshop".

Would you please advise if Mr Hooper was in receipt of travelling or subsistence expenses supplied by Warwickshire PCT.

Yours faithfully,

Dick Puddlecote
