substantial project that is going to take some considerable time across a

:05:22.:05:25.

complex piece of engineering to secure it for the future. I'm

:05:26.:05:29.

concerned also about the imlediate future and how we make sure the

There is no way this or any other government could allow a situation

this man wants to take a project in Cornwall to similar heights.

There are a lot of people who think this will be economically vdry
