LETTER : Cover up your hair for health's sake

From Mrs Norah Dickinson

Sir: In the picture accompanying your article on the school for asthmatic children ("A breath of fresh air for children with asthma", 28 February), the two young women bent over the children have long flowing locks falling over their shoulders. This could sprinkle dandruff, falling hairs and dust over their hapless charges.

Nurses and people dealing with food are required by law to cover their hair for public health reasons, so surely asthmatic children should be similarly protected.
