Sir: I am surprised that such influential people as Neil Gerard MP appear to know so little about what Section 28 actually says (letter, 1 November). Mr Gerard and other correspondents claim that you cannot educate people about Aids effectively while Section 28 still exists. The legislation states, in Clause 2A, subsection (2): "Nothing in subsection (1) above shall be taken to prohibit the doing of anything for the purpose of treating or preventing the spread of disease."
