As usual you have argued your case logically. My criticism of some of the appointments is in no way my reflection of the Integrity or otherwise of some of these appointments. I am sure they are all very decent citizens. However I have always considered that the strength of any appointed Control Board , Tribunal etc should be in the perception by those who fund their involvement is that they are completely at "arms length " from those that they have been employed to administer regulations , rules etc. On this occasion I find that not to be the case.
