Dear Mr Skinner

Further to your letter dated 27 September 2006 and my subsequent telephone conversation with Christine Davis on 29 September, I am writing to confirm receipt of your letter. As discussed with Christine Davis on the telephone, we would expect to be able to provide a detailed reply to your letter by the end of October and I understand from Ms Davis that this will be acceptable.

Yours sincerely
