Letter: Clangers and mash

Sir: I can't quite work out the number of potatoes required - but I do know that the second question ('New test for seven-year- olds', 23 November) should read: 'They NEED ONLY 3 potatoes for the soup . . . ' Just another example, I suppose, of how the English language is being chipped away.

Yours etc.,
