SIR - I am writing with regard to last the T&A article (November 29) about the Wool Exchange.

Mr Valentine has got his Kings of England mixed up. The statue to the right of the main entrance to the Wool Exchange is of Edward III, not Edward IV.

Edward III (1327- 1377) encouraged and promoted the wool trade in the 1300s. That is why he is there.

Edward IV was monarch in the mid 1400s. The Bradford market charter was granted to Edmund De Lacy by Henry III in 1251, some 200 years before Edward IV was born.

It is important to get facts and dates right.
