Dear Mr West

Please accept my apologies that you have not received a response to your enquiry of 20 November. As advised we do not provide hard copies of the Big Red Book due to it being a necessity to supply employees with the limited supply of stock that is held, therefore we are unable to send you a hard copy at another point in the future.

Yours sincerely
