Sir: As a successor to Lettie Norwood in her job at the Research Association I was sorry to hear her belittle her role as merely a non-technical member of the typing pool (report, 13 September). She was personal secretary to the director and must have signed the Official Secrets Act like the rest of us. I am glad he is no longer alive to suffer the distress he would have felt at the news of her spying.
