Mr Twigg,
Cannot tell you what the latest estimate is because they only have an estimate from 2002.

Surely it isn't good enough to fob us off with 2002 figures. There must be some way of working out the increase to give a more updated and accurate cost. This really isn't good enough. If I ask for an insurance quote or how much my holiday will cost, I wouldn't be given the price it was 3 years ago. Please!
