Public sector vital to central London success

  • Comment

I simply do not recognise Clare Melhuish's report of my talk on 'Making central London simple' (aj 24.2.00). Anyone who listened to a full account of what I said would have been aware that I started my talk by stressing the complexity of central London: a diverse, highly fragmented, multi-functioning city.

Equally, anyone who has read her perspective of what I said will see that it is a curious mixture of her own views and what she thinks are mine. If the full content - and context - of what I said had been reported, none of your readers would have been left in any doubt that I believe institutions such as Westminster City Council and London Transport are absolutely essential to the success of central London. I have said such things in public on many occasions.
