Let’s get to the point

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IN fact, it is Dr Arthur Smith who has cho­sen to miss my points (Let­ters, Novem­ber 2 and 16)—my com­ment about Hink­ley was fi­nan­cial, not tech­ni­cal. Rather than sim­ply buy­ing for­eign ex­per­tise out­right, we ap­pear to have sold most of the project—and much of its post-com­ple­tion con­trol—to French and Chi­nese con­trac­tors and in­vestors. This may have re­duced the short-term out­lay, but my se­cond point was that the cash ‘saved’ is to be squan­dered on the van­ity project HS2, an un­wor­thy re­cip­i­ent. My third point—that un­nec­es­sary mass move­ment should not be en­cour­aged—was missed al­to­gether. Kit Rae-scott, Devon
