Paul Priestly's email to Peter Dixon


We spoke.

I can understand your upset and frustration about some of the events at the PAC yesterday, especially when you and your colleagues on the IRT have no opportunity to respond.

You asked for my advice and I suggested that you should write to the PAC Chairman. You asked for a first draft of a letter you might send.

I have had a go at a draft. No doubt you will wish to tailor it to your own style and to reinforce any particular points you wish to make.

Best regards


Paul Priestly, Permanent Secretary

Department for Regional Development
