A most unfair letter from Red Thread
I refer to a letter written by Karen De Souza and others of the Red Thread organisation which appeared in your issue of Friday 6th April last. I would have expected that a comment would have been sought of my office by your newspaper before the publication of the letter.
The actual situation however, is that the letter by Karen De Souza and others was received by this office on Friday 30th March and a reply thereto was sent out by post on Wednesday April 4, 2012.
Was it the expectation of Red Thread that I should have dropped whatever I was doing and reply immediately to their letter? March 30 was a Friday and the following two days were the weekend, (non working days).
My reply was posted out on Wednesday April, 04. Surely, therefore, there was no undue delay on my part.
I consider the letter by Karen De Souza and others as being most unfair to this office as the impression might have been created that no attention was being given to their letter.
