Dear Mr [second name]
I am writing on behalf of the Party Chairman, The Rt Hon Grant Shapps MP, who has asked me to thank you for your letter,
It is good of you to get in touch and make us aware of your thoughts. All of our policies will be outlined in our 2015 Conservative Manifesto. Unfortunately the release date for this has not yet been announced.
Thank you, once again, for taking the time and trouble to get in touch.
Office of the Party Chairmen
Conservative Campaign Headquarters.
* Note: I did not give a title in my original letter but use Mx not Mr.
In the interests of fairness I have now also sent a copy to the LGBT Tory group to see if we get a more detailed response.
