Correction

Tuesday’s Conference Diary reported that Donal Blaney had, during a speech at the Conservative Way Forward reception, failed to spot Liam Fox MP in the room and had therefore not welcomed him by name as he had other MPs who were present.  Mr Blaney has informed us that he was not in fact the speaker in question and we are glad to set the record straight. Our apologies for the error.

A long and winding road lies ahead for the SNP' hopes for the referendum and independence in 2016. But does its plans for the keys issues pass the MOT test analogy raised by David Cameron?

Alexander Temerko

Alexander Temerko, whose consortium hopes to bring electricity from a French nuclear power station to southern Britain (Independent, 1 Sept), has asked us to reiterate that his proposal is to connect an underground pipeline to the National Grid at Lovedean in Hampshire, 14 miles inland from Portsmouth. The suggestion that he might have to connect further north in Surrey was, Mr Temerko tells us, tabled by National Grid due to lack of capacity on the south coast, and is not therefore “his plan”, as our headline put it.
