Sir: Dr Kim Howells comments on the profits of supermarket chains (The House, 10 December): Tesco may claim to make a loss of 30p per kilo on British beef but who, I wonder, makes the huge profit on British lamb?

I have seen farmers in Wales get 72p per kilo and even as little as 50p per lamb, but the price on the supermarket shelves is prohibitive to the housewife.
