LETTERS - Alec was a gentleman

ALEC Woodall fully deserves the tributes which were made in your columns.

He inspired confidence, had dedication to the problems of his constituents - and he had his own unique style of dealing with problems.

I remember how, when the NCB proposed putting the National Fuel Depot on the Upton Colliery site, he visited many other Coal Board locations, and forced the NCB to defend their reasons for the Upton proposal.

That’s style. Alec was a gentleman, in every sense of the word.
