Sir Tony Baldry responds to Oxfordshire Clinical Commissioning Group’s Transformation Programme Phase One consultation

The last letter that Henry V sent to Charles VI of France before he launched the Agincourt campaign was an ultimatum. “To the Most Serene Prince Charles our Cousin and adversary of France, Henry, by the Grace of God, King of England and France” and the letter went to state that Henry had done everything in his power to procure peace between the two countries.
