Letter to the Chairman from Amyas Morse,
Comptroller and Auditor General, National Audit Office, 22 October
NEW ARRANGEMENTS FOR NATIONAL AUDIT OFFICE

Thank you for your letter of 7 October asking for

I thought the most helpful way of responding to the
points you raised would be to let you see the letter I have sent

If there any matters you would like to discuss I
would, of course, be happy to do so.
