Letter: Class barrier

DR ALAN BORG, director of the V&A, says he wants to return to the museum's original mission, to promote art and design and encourage the interests of the working man ("V&A prepares to rejoin the modern world", 23 May). Since he introduced the compulsory pounds 5 admission fee, visitor numbers have fallen steadily, and we may assume that the working man has been successfully deterred.
