Abbey enterprise
FROM SIR BRYAN THWAITES
Sir, The Receiver General of Westminster Abbey Enterprises Ltd, Mr David Burden, writes (letter, June 4) to assure us that “the Dean and Chapter would never seek to benefit from or exploit any of its ministry (including the funeral of Princess Diana)”.

In fact, some 800 Abbey chairs were offered for sale, each carrying a state- ment of authenticity, dated March 20, 1998, and signed by the Dean himself, as having been used at the funeral.

Yours faithfully,
BRYAN THWAITES,
A13 Albany, Piccadilly, W1J 0AL.
