Dear Michael Williams,

That would also be ok, however the rate in July 2012 was £7.20 (as it was when I originally sent the request, it updates in November), so I thought it would be unfair to request that you paid the Living Wage that would be set 4 months in the future. However, feel free to use whichever rate you choose in your response.

Yours sincerely,

Rustam Majainah

Dear Mr Majainah,

 

It has come to my attention that for questions 1 and 2 of your request, I
have mistakenly used information from the 2011 Financial Statements rather
than the 2012 Financial Statements. Please note that all the remaining
information is up to date and relevant to the dates that you requested.

 

Please find attached the updated response and please accept my apologies
for the mistake.

 

Kind regards,
