Hoon admits balls-up on Heathrow evidence

That should help people have confidence in the decision making process then.

The Transport Secretary has said there was a cock-up relating to the predicted 2009 gross domestic product growth rate given in proposals.

The GDP figure was given as 1% when it should have been -1%, meaning the Heathrow third runway and sixth terminal net benefit comes down from £5.4bn to £5.1bn.

Notts MP Hoon said the mistake did "not materially affect" evidence presented on the impact of expansion.

I wonder what Leila Deen thinks.

Hoon is well known in the blogosphere. So much so that his name is used to describe the female anatomic special place. For myself, I think this useage is a slur on the name of feminist joy.
