From Mr Nigel de Gruchy

Dear Madam: If, as Gillian Shephard alleges, there is no proven connection between smaller classes and higher levels of achievement among pupils, why should teachers respond to the Government's initiative on drugs when there is no proven connection between more drugs education and less drug taking among our youngsters?

Yours faithfully,

NIGEL DE GRUCHY
