Letter: In Brief

Sir: Andreas Whittam Smith's proposal to change the names of the upper house and its members to "Senate" and "senators" is eminently sensible (Comment, 25 June). However, he neglects consideration of the lower house, which, in his egalitarian vision, might be better called the House of Representatives, an accurate description of MPs' functions.
