Sir: I rest securely in my bed in the certain knowledge that Lord Rees-Mogg is out there doing battle against the 20,000 households receiving encrypted pornographic films in the wee small hours.

My vision (I hope) of Europe is a little wider than these minor pruderies.

Lord Rees-Mogg must surely know that such material is available throughout the EC - except that most member states make a better job of keeping it away from minors. At least two reputable European satellite stations openly transmit soft pornography in the late hours, and many periodicals carry illustrated listings of the sex films of the week.

Really, have we not more relevant concerns?

Yours faithfully,

GEORGE WALKER
