Dear Mr Bagwell,

Thank you for your letter of 21 July. It arrived this morning, crossing with my last letter to you, dated 25 July.

I appreciate you have been busy and that the MCA has had to consult other parties in connection with our request for disclosure of the Assessment Report. However, that should not have delayed a response to our general enquiries about the work of the MCA in controlling advertising, nor resolution of our complaint about misleading claims for Detrusitol.

You have only to look back at this long correspondence with the MCA, to see why apologies may not have the desired effect. I've made the point often enough: if you get stuck, or need extra time, you could save yourselves an awful lot of time and trouble by picking up the phone. This might also help people your end to understand that we have no wish to burden you or complicate your work.

Yours sincerely,
Charles Medawar
