  • Read the policy

    Dear Sir / Madam, The articles on the highly protected Marine Conservation Zone proposals on the front page and page 4 of the 23 May edition include several factually incorrect claims and statements and are therefore misleading for your readers. Whilst the Welsh Government’s consultation document is indeed unclear, confusing and hard work to read, most of the claimed proposals to ban activites described in your articles are simply untrue. Likewise the “concern for industries” headline is unfounded – the Welsh Government has already filtered out possible sites that might conflict with strategic economic development policies. read more

  • Reliable technology

    Dear Editor:- Health and Safety – Recently I lost my telephone and computer connection. As it was daylight I didn’t realise it was due to a power cut. I have modern digital phones. If I had needed a phone in an emergency situation it could have caused a major problem. Fortunately, I have still got an old phone that plugs into the BT socket. When I connected this, my first message was from Western Power apologising for the power cut. The moral of this story is to recommend, even if you have up to date equipment, and have still got an old phone, keep it plugged into a phone socket somewhere in the house – just in case you really need one in an emergency. read more
