Modest Lane

5th December 1997 at 00:00
Graham Lane is too modest about the achievements of his local authority (TES, November 21). If my reading of the tables is correct Newham is not only the most improved authority in London but the most improved in England. Not bad for an area rated the most deprived in England by the Government.
