Letter: Judge BAA on its past record

Click to follow
MICHAEL Maine asks why people in West London refuse to accept BAA's promise that it has no wish to build an additional runway at Heathrow. Perhaps part of the answer is in the second half of his letter where he tries to convince readers that BAA wants to build a fifth terminal not because it is in the interests of shareholders but because it is in the interests of the country. What nonsense] BAA is a public limited company with a primary duty to shareholders. Any claim that it is working solely in the national interest raises doubts about its integrity.
