Sir: I remember that when I was child every Leicester City Corporation bus had a notice: "Children travelling at concession rates must not occupy seats whilst other passengers are standing."

Today, we have paid adult rates for our children from the age of nine at some events. It is hardly surprising that as much as I have taught my children to help those in need regardless of age or sex, many of their contemporaries believe - and I have heard said: "I paid the same as everyone else; its not my problem if there aren't enough seats."
