Packager bosses are trying hard to rebuild confidence

I read with interest the recent letter from Kevin Friend (Mortgage Strategy April 21) in which on one hand he applauds Terry Pritchard for doing everything he could to keep Chase UK going and on the other, urges bosses of other packagers to shut up shop.

For someone who seems to have moved around the mortgage market with some regularity in the past few years to pontificate on what others should do with their businesses is unfortunate, to say the least.

It might surprise Friend to learn that many of us are manfully doing what we can to rebuild confidence in the sector to offset the negativity of the doom merchants and also ensure we provide a future for our businesses and staff.

I have a simple request to the purveyors of gloom – give it a rest.
