PVC Dome meets safety standards

Sir: Lord Melchett's article (25 July) criticises the choice of fabric for the Millennium Dome.

Our advice is that PVC-coated polyester is the safest and most environmentally- sound fabric which is available for the Dome covering. It meets all current safety standards and, contrary to the impression given by Greenpeace, no country in the world either has banned it or is proposing to phase it out.
