Still with Merton

I have seen a copy of your article (The Lawyer 26 March) indicating Merton is looking for a new solicitor to head its Legal Services Department.

However, your article is incorrect in stating that Peter Large has left us, and it follows that he has "gone to do his own thing".

Peter is still employed by the council and providing legal advice that we value, and he intends to continue in local government and in the law when he does leave us in May.

I would be grateful if you would make this clear.
