LETTERS - Take things seriously.
Due to an error in the editing process, a key phrase was omitted from Jeffrey Lampert’s letter published last week. We publish it in full below:
Re: Heritage receiver in multimillion lawsuit, page 3, 1 November. I will not comment on the litigation, other than to say that your article understates the seriousness of the case.
I do however feel it necessary to point out that: Grant Thornton were also tax advisers to Heritage plc.
I have only gratitude for the assistance of the PSO at the ICAEW and the Insolvency Service at the DTI. Matters have been suspended due to the impending litigation.
Neither I nor Heritage plc have brought litigation for redress against the company’s bankers, Lloyds TSB.
Jeffrey Lampert, London.
