Mr Eggins.

Overnight thought but first I feel it is a bit unfair to call this the Holloway plan. Chairmen before him espoused the scheme with similar enthusiasm.

Richard will have more precise figures but if you want to compare that project with the Horizon project you could compare costs per annum.

The scheme you mention would, if the world had not had Covid, have taken just over two years and cost something in excess of £26m.

Horizon has listed opportunities costing a bit more than double that but has suggested the expenditure could be spread over about ten times the length of time – and don’t forget almost any element could be cancelled from the list as the years, and needs, progressed.

I have to challenge your opening sentence but would be fascinated to hear you justify it.
