This, I'm afraid, is a typically ill-informed response from the ODPM.

Sitefinder does not show all masts, and is not accessible much of the time. In Pembrokeshire, for example, the Local Authority recently discoved that there were thirteen TETRA masts rather than the six they were aware of. Local residents located many of these themselves, and not through sitefinder.

The other comments about consultation etc demonstrate that the minister is either unaware or not prepared to acknowledge the fact that the dictionary definition is different to the ODPM's definition.

Moreover, I question the validity of the ARUP study, which did not consult with all organisations representing the views of the victims of government policy. Another case of lies, damn lies and statistics?
