Letter: A banned school trip that caused no outcry

Sir: Regarding the 'Romeo and Juliet affair', a few years ago the then Conservative head of Kent County Council banned schools in the county from attending a performance of Benjamin Britten's opera Death in Venice because it had a homosexual theme.

I do not remember any outcry then in the media or Westminster about the evils of 'political correctness'.

Yours faithfully,
