Sir: Your report "Blair plans European affairs department" (24 February) is utterly false. It alleges that "the plan for a department of European affairs is currently being worked on in Tony Blair's office". There is no such plan.

The "senior Labour source" on whose briefing the story claims to be based is seriously misinformed.
