Sir: Having had to fill in a similar form to Mr Westcarr (letter, 18 September) recently I can sympathise with him.

If you want to be British you have to be white, apparently. It is all right to be ethnically Indian or Chinese but if you are black you must be ethnically African or Caribbean or something else foreign. I do not see Britishness as having anything to do with colour. Could we not just have the option "British"?
