Sir: Your report on sexual bullying in schools (21 July) sent shivers down my spine. Apparently nothing has changed in the 20 years since I left school.

It is a scandal that, two years after the election, the Government has still not repealed Section 28 of the Local Government Act, which effectively stops schools tackling the problem of bullying, yet is about to embark upon another attempt to ban fox-hunting.

Are the rights of animals really more important than those of our children?
