SIX DAYS IN THE LAP OF LUXURY

Neil and Christine Hamilton spent six days at the Paris Ritz, the High Court jury were told. On the first night their dinner cost pounds 222. On the next day, after a full American breakfast and mini bar charges of pounds 35, they lunched in the restaurant for pounds 85 and had a dinner costing pounds 210.

Letter: Home news

Sir: As a "housewife at home", I resent the assumption that I want lighter domestic news ("ITN's news at teatime is missing big stories", 12 November). Domestic duties and supper are rarely finished in time for the BBC's Nine O'Clock News. News at Ten provided a reasonably intelligent comment and is missed.

Aitken, convicted liar and man of faith, prepares to meet his jailer

JONATHAN AITKEN took a carefully planned last supper with close friends and family as he prepared for an almost inevitable prison sentence today. It will be the final humiliating chapter in the dramatic downfall of a man who once boasted incredible wealth and was tipped as a future prime minister.

Letter: Leonardo

Sir: Why all the fuss about Leonardo's Last Supper (report, 26 May)? It is known that technical problems started when it was barely finished. Flaking paint got lost over the intervening centuries and repair has meant compromise or approximation for a long time. Why no fuss about all the other old masterpieces which now look like 20th- or 21st-century art? It seems that every period restores to the taste of its time. Nobody complained when, years ago, objections could have helped pictures by great masters to remain masterpieces. Do we only care for lost causes?
