Sir: Your report 'Building on green belt sites to be encouraged' (18 July) means that the Government is launching another national lottery, but this time the prizewinners will be known in advance. Moreover, no prize will be less than pounds 1m.

Entrants need only own or buy a few acres of green belt land and allow it to fall into a derelict state. The competition should be very popular and the winners can be expected to enter again and again.

Yours faithfully,

RONALD EYRES
