Severn Barrage: getting our shanks in a row

With regard to the on-going debate about the Severn Barrage project, you quote (NCE 8 November) Baroness Young as saying that 'the price of wrecking valuable wildlife is not the way forward.'
One might feel that this statement ought not to be made by someone in her position because it does not reflect the findings of many detailed ornithological investigations of the effects of this project, these collectively pointing in the opposite direction. Unless of course the Environment Agency has new and conflicting evidence?
