Of course, the strategy of finding new uses for the elegant listed buildings of the city is welcome. In my view, however, Newcastle's attractiveness as a regional capital would be greatly enhanced by the demolition of the uglier 1960s/70s office blocks, some of which unhappily are sited amidst the classical splendour which Peter Dormer is so rightly keen to see preserved for the future.
Yours faithfully, Joyce Quin MP for Gateshead East (Lab)
