Barry Esson, curator and producer of the Instal festival, asked me to
pass on the following statement from him:

> I contacted Corwood Industries some months ago and, following a
> lengthy dialogue during which several assurances, both personal and
> professional were made, Corwood were happy to send a representative
> to the festival to perform with Richard Youngs and Alex Neilson.  Out
> of respect to both those assurances and the individuals involved, we
> will not be commenting further, nor confirming or denying any of the
> purely speculative assumptions about the event currently circulating.
> Given the nature of this situation, we hope that the above is not
> taken as being deliberately taciturn.  Simply, the event, [and certain
> performances at it], were built on trust, a trust that we are not keen
> to betray.
> I hope that people will respect this and realise that it is in
> everybody's interest to allow the artists in question to continue
> their practice in what ever way they see fit.
