Thank you for your letter of 18th March.

It is often the most straightforward questions that are the most difficult to answer.

With Gavin Kingsnorth I am currently working on an "action plan" to put into practise the recommendations of the report. Communication, by definition, is a two way process. I anticipate therefore that we will conclude that we need to visit a number of Local Councils to understand better what the Local Councils need from our services and where they see the need for improved communication. In other words, I think we firstly need to ask you.

If you would volunteer to help us in this we would be pleased to attend one of your forthcoming meetings.
