Expression of thanks to those who sent 80th Birthday messages

Published 21 April 2006

I would like to thank the many thousands of people from this country and overseas who have sent me cards and messages on my eightieth birthday.

I have been very touched by what you have written, and would like to express my gratitude to you all for making this day such a special one for me.
