Legacy of gas production

Sir: British Gas, the owners of the proposed Millennium site in Greenwich (report, 17 May), seem to have kept a remarkably low profile in the debate about how the development is to be funded. The main problem with the site is the legacy of 100 years of gas production - and the apparent generosity of British Gas in donating the site is very much a poisoned chalice.

At a time of almost universal consensus that the polluter should pay the cost of decontaminating polluted land and when British Gas is brimming with profits, is not the case for them sponsoring the site overwhelming?
