Evasive Trust: Letter

Sir: In his reply to criticisms of the National Trust (Letters, 12 October) the chairman has neatly managed to avoid answering any of the points made so forcefully by your correspondents.

I cannot imagine that any explanation at the annual general meeting will provide answers. The National Trust is a stubbornly elitist body, many of whose staff are patronising to visitors.

My small protest is to stay a member of the Scottish National Trust but visit mainly English properties; illogical perhaps, but it also recognises that in Scotland these problems do not exist.
