Sir: I am surprised to see your report that the 'head of public relations' at LSE - a junior official - is to resign because of the vote of the academic board rejecting the director's proposal to charge top-up fees to undergraduates ('LSE rejects plan to charge tuition fees', 24 June).

When a previous PR operation - the 'bid' for County Hall - failed, the same official was put forward as spokesman. The responsibility for both fiascos was that of the director, and he should be the one to resign.

Yours sincerely,
