No moratorium here?

Forgot to mention one classic moment at the Full Council meeting, when the relevant Convener was responding to a question about the use of biomass in Edinburgh ...

... he boldly asserted that there has never been a moratorium on the use of biomass in the city?

Someone should really politely request that he goes back and re-reads a report that went before Council in December 2007 - you can find it here ... paragraph 2.17 at the foot of page 3 clearly states:

"the Council is adopting a precautionary principle in suspending the use of biomass pending the outcome of the Scottish Government Research findings."

'Suspending' --- 'moratorium' --- damned if I can tell the difference??

Yet more proof, if ever it were needed, on who is truly running the Council these days ... and it's not the said-Convener :-(
