From Mr Andrew Sturgis

Sir: Hamish McRae suggests that the common-sense instincts of "ordinary people" are against European monetary union. A lot of "ordinary people" take holidays abroad in Europe. They are angry and frustrated by the expenses they have to incur every time they change their pounds into francs or pesetas or lira, and again at the end of their holidays, when changing their francs or pesetas or lira back into pounds.

Despite the enormous publicity given to the Eurosceptics over recent months, many ordinary people continue to hold the commonsense view that a single market cannot work properly without a single currency.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Sturgis
