Letters to the editor

In 'Public protest forces waste strategy U-turn' (NCE 4 February) you quote Professor Robin Murray as being of 'London Waste Watch'.

This is an error which has caused a lot of confusion. I would be grateful if you would print a correction as a matter of urgency. Professor Robin Murray works with the consultancy Ecologika. There is no such organisation as London Waste Watch.

There is, however, a national organisation called Waste Watch, which works with local authorities, businesses and community groups on waste reduction, reuse and recycling. Waste Watch has not been campaigning against London Waste's application to expand its Edmonton Plant, and Professor Robin Murray does not work for Waste Watch.

Ray Georgeson, executive director, Waste Watch, Europa House, 13-17 Ironmonger Row, London EC1V 3QG.

I write to correct your article 'Academics call for ICE to evict nuclear group' (NCE 4 March). The article states that the British Nuclear Industry Forum (BNIF) is a tenant of the ICE at One Great George Street, SW1. This is not the case.

The BNIF, the trade association for 65 companies engaged in all aspects of the civil nuclear electricity industry has its only office at 22 Buckingham Gate, London SW1. We are not tenants of the ICE and never have been. Nor do we share our office space with any other organisation.

Keith Parker, director of communications and public affairs, British Nuclear Industry Forum, 22 Buckingham Gate, London SW1E 6LB.
