With reference to the article Rolls-Royce faces strike ballot threat - published 12/04/2000 on just-auto.com (/news_detail.asp?art=6721) Our readers should be aware of the following letter sent to the just-auto.com editor:

Dear Sir

As the PR Manager for Rolls-Royce and Bentley Motor Cars in Crewe, I have just been made aware of your piece on Rolls-Royce strike ballot. Could I point out that this is not the automotive manufacturer - this is the separate company Rolls-Royce plc, the aeroengine company. We are not part of the same group - we are owned by the Volkswagen group.

Would hate the confusion to escalate ...

Thanks in anticipation.
