Sir: You refer ("National Power joins tax revolt", 22 May) to BAA "threatening legal action" on the windfall tax. We have not said that. Like any major company that may be impacted by a substantial tax measure, we owe it to our shareholders to take legal advice with respect to its application to us. But that is a million miles from threatening legal action. If the advice suggested that inappropriate measures were being taken with respect to BAA, that advice would be discussed with government.
