The Prince's Foundation Responds

Hank Dittmar of the Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment responds to recent accusations that Prince Charles has unduly influenced the planning process in the U.K.

Says Dittmar:

"Your reporter Robert Booth, after a systematic trawl of development circles, unearthed a private letter written by the Prince of Wales four years ago and ignored by the recipient. He also reported the fact that the Prince's Foundation for the Built Environment regularly meets colleagues and works with developers around the country. In my view, this is thin gruel for a news story."
