Exaggerated shrinkage

5th November 2010 at 00:00

In response to "Skills Funding Agency shrinkage begins as 260 jobs are axed" (October 29), we would like to point out that 227 - not 260 - staff left the organisation last week, having opted to do so under the civil servants' voluntary severance or early retirement programme.

Natasha Groocock, Skills Funding Agency, Coventry.
