Thank you for your letter of 23 January, concerning the referral of the Penrose Report to the Serious Fraud Office.
The Committee has noted this development, but wishes to place on record its hope and expectation that this will not cause any delay in the publication of the Report. We note that in your letter you stated that you still intend "to publish the report in full as soon as possible".
