From Mr Hugh Sheppard

Sir: Harriet Harman has nothing to apologise to her own party for, let alone the Conservatives. She is fully entitled to seek the best for her son under a system for which her party has no responsibility. That does not mean she agrees with it, nor that she wants something for herself she would deny to others.

In the same way, I wish that instead of a cut in income tax, the Government would spend more on social objectives. That doesn't mean I am going to offer to pay extra tax - just that I would be prepared to when the government changes.

Yours faithfully,

Hugh Sheppard
