Denis MacShane Higher Person
Prince Charles and his letters to Ministers.
Denis MacShane, once a Labour minister (jailed for expenses fraud) and with experience of such letters, was brought in to discuss how they were dealt with. He said that they were given to the 'best drafter' for a reply, just as with letters from any "higher person" such as the Archbishop of Canterbury or the Chief Rabbi. He later referred to "persons of status".
This is included for contrast.
