Letter: In Brief

Sir: I would like to think that it was hypocrisy and not paying for sex that made the Joe Ashton story newsworthy (leading article, 29 March). If he had "taken the privacy of the individual seriously" he would not have decided to tack his ludicrous abuse-of-trust provisions on to the Sexual Offences (Amendment) Bill, which reduced the homosexual age of consent.
