Letter: GM pollution peril

Sir: Mr Blair need look no further than his government's decision to delegate the bank rate to an independent authority, and let the scientific community thoroughly research the GM crops and report back to us when they are satisfied they have something meaningful to tell us all.

Meanwhile, before we further contemplate letting GM crops on to the market the Government should end its squabble with its most senior scientist, Sir Robert May, over how long tests should last and abandon its ill conceived and arbitrary deadlines for trials.
