Att Mr John Bercow.

Speaker of the House of Commons

Dear Mr Speaker

Please cast you mind back to 2004-05 and your concerns for public safety and public funds ref the subject title. Some 10 years on, it would appear the Chad/Cameroon Pipeline(CCP) is still a boondogle and has made no difference to the local population ref elimination of poverty. In fact, the situation is far worse now and the CCP is still operating in a legal void and oil revenues are still being diverted to purchase arms.

Please see Hansard Answers which carries approx 70/75 questions from you personally as Shadow Minister for the DFID. This reports supports your allegations were indeed well founded.

I would be most grateful if you would follow this up with the World Bank/EIB please.

with thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield.

Dear Mr Bradshaw

As you are aware, I am on record with my MP ref my concerns for public safety from wind turbines.

Please confirm if you have read the two Health and Safety Executive (restricted) reports which I sent you 8 weeks ago. If not, why not?

I have also discovered recently a 3rd wind turbine collapsed in Teignmouth on Oct 13 under similar circumstances i.e., catastrophic failures.

Something is very seriously wrong with the design, construction and operation of these wind turbines if they are are to liable topple over akin to ten pin bowls.

Can you please advise me of your intention please Mr Bradshaw.

The following article makes very disconcerting reading.

With thanks

Yours sincerely

Alan M Dransfield
