Confidence in Connell

I write in connection with the article 'Conjurors question Magic Circle advisers' which appeared in the The Lawyer, 13 January.

I wish it to be known that at a meeting of members of The Magic Circle held on Monday 12 January to discuss various matters concerning the conversion of the society's new headquarters, Mr Rupert Connell gave a full and detailed response to all questions relating to the work carried out by either himself or his firm.

The resounding response from the members present was an unqualified expression of total confidence in Mr Connell and his firm Hobson Audley Hopkins & Wood.

The Magic Circle.
