Dear Mr Noades
I shall be dealing with your request. In order for us to respond correctly, I do seek one point for clarification at this stage if I may.
What do you mean by 'Direct Labor Organisation'? And are all the questions that follow related to said 'Direct Labour Organisation'?
I look forward to hearing from you.
With kind regards
