According to the brief for the million-pound feasibility study, ‘The Feasibility Steering Group will present an interim report to the GLA and the DCMS in June 2015 and a final report in September 2015.’

Hadn’t happened, apparently, by close of play today.

Any chance they’ll sort it out before the next Heathrow runway?

    Whover wrote this ‘feasibility study’ is illiterate.
    He/ she clearly doesn’t know the difference between ‘LEAD’ ( a metal and also part of the declension of ‘to lead’) and ‘LED’ ( no not ‘LED’ lights, but another part of the declension of ‘to lead’)
    So, in this rather important document, we have the rather gruesome and illiterate
    ‘Lead by the Barbican’
    QED!

      Are you really surprised? The standards of literacy among the supposedly educated elite of this country have never been lower. I could give you an entire compendium of examples, but let me confine myself to just one because it also involves a verb. Very few people these days seem to understand the difference between a transitive and an intransitive verb, witness the never-ending confusion over “to lay” and “to lie”.
