Sir: The Government must stand firm in the "Banana war". President Clinton may be in the pay of Chiquita Banana but it would be humiliating in the extreme if this company also called the tune in Europe.

I declare an interest. My family are banana growers in the Caribbean and I know that most of them live on the poverty line. The solution is for Chiquita bananas to pay Central American workers a living wage rather than using their hunger as part of the game of monopoly capitalism. To drag in Scottish cashmere workers is disgusting.
