Sir: I can empathise with G M Jones's letter (24 April) and his views on society's unfair attitudes to the relative worth of mothers and fathers. But losing the immediate and continuous presence of a child neither relieves the father of his responsibilities nor, thankfully, of the benefits and pleasures associated with his status.
