Letter: Millennial ideas for all

TWO ideas for the Millennium Fund (Neal Ascherson, 27 November): spend the money on replanting the great forests. This would benefit us all, and not be limited to one location.

Second, (also environmental) create a cheap, integrated public transport system. Start by rebuilding the railways Beeching so foolishly destroyed. Spend a billion on bread, not circuses.
