GPs demand inquiry over IT contracts

Dr Chris Nunn has conceded she is unlikely to win her Court of Appeal battle to have a phone mast near her house torn down. Dr Nunn, a GP in Leeds, is fighting to overturn planning permission granted to T-Mobile. The mobile phone company was able to erect the mast after Leeds city council was a day late in lodging an objection.

'The Government has decided that the operators have more rights than the local residents,' she said.

The court of appeal has deferred judgment for four to six weeks. The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Mobile Telecommunications is set to launch a private member's Bill in this session of Parliament in an attempt to close the loophole that allowed the mast to be erected.
