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.
