Letter: Local inspiration will make our inner cities bloom

From Professors Brian Robson and Michael Parkinson

Sir: We were dismayed to read the front-page headline ' pounds 10bn wasted on failed inner-city policy' on 17 June. We have no wish to pre-empt the main conclusions of the report which, we are assured, is to be published imminently. However, the headline misrepresents the conclusions at which we arrived. There is no way in which the suggested five recommendations could lead to so bleak an interpretation. Nor were we the source of the comments attributed to the authors.

Yours faithfully,
