THE Independent on Sunday on 2 May suggested that Mr Michael Shrimpton, barrister, had been 'far from independent' in preparing a paper with two colleagues on the implications for Denmark of the 1992 Edinburgh European summit. We accept that in advising that Denmark had failed to obtain any opt-outs from the Maastricht Treaty Mr Shrimpton acted in good faith and exercised an independent judgement. We apologise to Mr Shrimpton for any injury to his professional reputation.
