Letter: Refugee children

Sir: Mike Boyle, who is supervising the Local Government Association programme for housing asylum seekers ("Straw takes emergency powers", 24 August) is worried about successfully integrating refugees into host communities. He says it would be inappropriate for councils in monocultural (presumably meaning very white and reputedly very Anglo-Saxon) areas to house as many refugees as multicultural areas. Inappropriate in whose eyes? I'm sure his views will be well received by racists wherever they reside.

Letter: Don't blame police

Sir: Your headline "Attacks could lead to a violent backlash" (3 May) gives a misleading impression of my comments on GMTV's Sunday Programme.

Sports Letters: Blame foreigners for our failure

Sir: We must face the fact that, whatever messiah we may put in charge, England are unable to produce a side that can win anything in Europe, let alone the world. This will continue as long as Premier clubs pack their teams with foreign players, leaving insufficient chance for promising young Englishmen to play at the highest level.

Letter: Condon and the racists

YOUR profile of Metropolitan Police Commissioner Paul Condon (4 October) takes the position that Condon is a decent enough chap beset by a force of many rather less decent people. Unfortunately, even Condon himself has a long way to go before he understands the daily realities of life for those whose policing he is in charge of. He is now on record as saying that even if Stephen Lawrence had been white his murderers would probably have got away. Wrong. If Stephen had been white his racist attackers would not have bothered him at all.

Czechs to stop gypsy exodus

Queen's Speech

Letter: Cast adrift

David Usborne's report of the spartan wooden bunks and "tiny" exercise area on the prison ship Resolution ("Return of the incredible hulks", 19 January) makes depressing reading. The Resolution cannot possibly meet the standards that the Prison Service applies to new prisons.

Asylum-seekers may be given European-wide rights

A leaked report on asylum-seekers says they may be given European- wide rights, including arrangements to guarantee schooling for their children. The inter-governmental report will fuel the controversy today over a move in the Lords by Lady Williams, SDP founder, and Opposition peers to restore a three-day period of "grace" in the Asylum Bill for people seeking political asylum.

`Immigrant' dropped

The Government announced last night that the word "immigrant" is to be removed from the Asylum and Immigration Bill as a legal term to refer to people subject to immigration control.
