Villagers: Letters to the Editor 2005-11-10

Cost benefit analysis is important because it estimates all the costs and benefits of a project to society. According to Emma Browne in last week's Village (3-9 November) the Department of Finance told Village that under Finance Guidelines a cost benefit analysis of the runway proposal should have been done. Minister Cullen stated in the Dáil in June that the Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) told him it had conformed to the Guidelines.
