Letter: In Brief

Sir: Gay rights campaigners responded to the Lords vote against lowering the homosexual age of consent last Tuesday by claiming that the Lords were out of touch. Out of touch with whom? The Lords have consistently voted against lowering the age of consent to 16. This accurately reflects the wishes of the electorate who are themselves two-thirds against this measure. It is the House of Commons and the Government that are out of touch with people of this nation.
