Cleaning up for the Millennium

Sir: Contrary to Andrew Blundy's letter (29 May), British Gas is already supporting the Millennium Exhibition to the tune of millions of pounds.

Firstly, British Gas has committed to pay some pounds 20m to secure a Jubilee Line station on the Greenwich peninsula. Without this, the site would never have been considered for hosting the Millennium Exhibition and its long-term regeneration would have been less certain. Secondly, British Gas is making a substantial part of the site available, at no cost, to the Exhibition. Thirdly, British Gas is committed to meeting in full, from its own funds, the substantial cost of cleaning up the Peninsula to comply with the latest environmental legislation.
