Third time lucky?

I can&#39t quite believe I am writing my third letter but here goes again. Millfield chief executive Paul Tebbutt yet again seems not to understand the question.

I was not asking for a profit forecast merely whether he was going to make a profit at all. It is only through his company&#39s closed period that he can&#39t say anything but this ended in July.

One of the roles of a chief executive must be to promote his company. On two occasions now, Money Marketing has given him an excellent platform to do just that. Each time he has failed. Still, at least Neil Woodford gave me a straight answer but Money Marketing readers wait with bated breath for Mr Tebbutt&#39s answer.
