A DUMB RATE=A DUMB RATE OF INTEREST
Below is an extract from the report to the Cabinet Committee on the Design Museum loan:-
An officer with a sense of humour decided to inject a sort of 'faux amis' into the planning paper. He used that fine verb,to Adumbrate.
Obviously, he was being tongue in cheek, for as we all know, the loan interest rate translates into what it is for us taxpayers ... A DUMB RATE
It is good to see RBK&C officers have a sense of humour!!!
5.RELATIONSHIP WITH PLANNING DECISIONS
5.1A decision by Cabinet either to grant or deny the offer of a loan to the Design Museum does not ADUMBRATE the decisions of the Major Planning Development Committee in relation to the redevelopment of the site or the specific decisions regarding elements of the scheme that must be determined by the Committee or the Executive Director for Planning and Borough Development
