We should take an active part in mcCormac debate (8 July)

Please note the error in this letter. I do not speak on behalf of Renfrewshire EIS, nor do I hold any post within Renfrewshire EIS. The reference to Renfrewshire EIS was added to the letter, which appears as a reply to Henry Hepburn's article last week, and while my name was appended I did not claim to speak for the EIS. I am deeply embarrassed by the alteration as I have made it clear that all comments I have made regarding McCormac are my own views and not those of the EIS.
