Sir: I read with interest the letter "Modified Wealth" (16 September). Your readers, and indeed Colin Pickthall MP, may wish to learn of a series of public discussion forums taking place around the country in which consumers are invited to put forward their views.

These events, organised by Foodfuture - an information programme on the benefits and concerns of genetic modification - have witnessed heated debate around the UK, with audiences grilling expert panels representing the range of scientific, consumer and industry opinions.

Mr Pickthall may wish to note that entrance is free of charge.
