LUCK OF THE DRAW: Lottery funding for the enhancement of roads was rejected at the ICE last week after a motion proposed by Mark Whitby (above right) and Sir Jocelyn Stevens (above left) was defeated by 43 votes to 30 with 15 abstentions. After chairman of the debate Peter Guthrie urged those present to maintain decorum despite 'red rags' that would be thrown up, the evening heard some thoughtful discussion. After his defeat at the hands of Terry Mulroy and David Rogers (below) who opposed the motion, Whitby said: 'I'm disappointed to lose, but it was an important debate that will encourage further discussion.'
