Unusually, there were a number of factual inaccuracies in the AJ's reporting of CABE activity in the last issue (AJ 1/8.8.02).
First, we support the scheme for Renzo Piano's London Bridge Tower, although we have made detailed comments on possible refinements to aspects of the scheme. CABE is likely to appear at the forthcoming public inquiry although expense is a significant issue.
Second, the Treasury is not blocking the joint CABE/OGC report on public procurement.
On the contrary, the Treasury has offered CABE a great deal of support in the preparation of the publication, and in promoting its conclusions to other government departments. The report should be available in the autumn.
