Sir: There has been a lot of discussion about the high cost of Viagra and whether the NHS can afford to prescribe it, but I do not think these costs have been put into context. The cost of a single pill is about the same as a packet of fish and chips, and the total cost, if it is freely available, is a drop in the ocean compared to the value of the sex industry in this country. Anyone who wants it can afford it. That should be the end of the matter.
