Sir: Richard Dawkins's intellectual elitism does a serious disservice to debate about the implications of cloning animals. It is arrogant to suggest that there is no place for other than "experts in the field" to engage in public debate.

"Experts" have their place, but recent history in advising the Government and the public engenders a healthy scepticism about their wisdom, if not knowledge.
