Hi Phil:
Unless I am mistaken, the above is intended to deal with such things
as mathematical errors on the part of the accountants - literally
adding up things wrongly. Is your interpretation of accounting
conventions actually born out by the experience of accountants? For example,
have accountants themselves used FRS3 to adjust the valuation of
fixed capital due to premature and unanticipated obsolescence? Just
In solidarity, Jerry
