Peter Kellner in "The Tory Report" (Review, 6 October) comments that "until 1977 pay differentials were gradually narrowing. Then, in the middle of the Wilson/Callaghan government they began to widen". I feel I should point out that though Labour remained in office from 1974 to 1979, Harold Wilson actually resigned in 1976. Thus, I think you do his memory a disservice by associating him with the policies of Callaghan that helped to bring about greater inequality.
