Letter: British Coal's stranglehold on pits

Sir: On television on Tuesday night, and in Parliament and the House of Lords on Tuesday afternoon, the Prime Minister and Lord Wakeham tried to give the impression that the Government had always intended a thoroughgoing review of energy policy and the case for coal during the moratorium which has been forced upon them. This was plainly untrue.

Am I alone in finding their dishonesty in presenting a change of policy even more alarming than the crazy policy they were being forced to reconsider?

Yours sincerely,
