Sir: Cardinal Basil Hume is right to point out that many of our economic and social problems have a moral dimension. A shared sense of mutual responsibility, respect for (all) life, and a stable and caring home environment for children are goals we can all agree on.

It is a pity, therefore, that he takes the opportunity to exercise the old dogmas on abortion and the shape of the family, rather than considering how, through social dialogue, we might work towards the creation of a new, shared morality and the development of public policies to support it.
