The arrogance of the inspector at the pre-enquiry hearing into the second runway beggars belief.

An issue as important as the potential imposition of a huge expansion affecting the lives of thousands of people, and the inspector has "other things to do with his life than write a report"!

Well so does everybody else, but they still devote their time - unpaid.

He may have Government breathing down his neck wanting a speedy conclusion to the enquiry. Tough.

Inspectors with the right attitude need to be employed, who will listen to the public and stand up to Government. Who appoints the Inspectors?

John F Williams, District Councillor Duxford and Ickleton
