THE WAR OF WORDS

  • Comment

9 FEBRUARY 2005 (AFTER THE VISIT) From John Everitt, chief executive of Bath & North East Somerset Council, to construction minister Nigel Griffiths:

'For a government minister to make what appears to be unsubstantiated claims that will clearly impact on potential litigation is a concerning situation and one that demands an explanation.'

9 FEBRUARY 2005 From construction minister Nigel Griffiths to chief executive of Bath & North East Somerset Council John Everitt:

'I have been following your council's official comments to the media during the course of the Bath Spa fiasco, and they strike me as delusional.'

10 FEBRUARY 2005 From Bath MP Don Foster to construction minister Nigel Griffiths:

'Your 'bull in a china shop' approach may well have caused irreparable damage and set back the project still further.'

11 FEBRUARY 2005 From construction minister Nigel Griffiths to Bath MP Don Foster:

'You ask for an apology. I make none, since the apology the citizens of Bath and North East Somerset want is from you for your failure to intervene and ensure your council, as the client, act decisively to stop costs soaring and get this facility open.'
