Sir: Of course it is foolish to make denying the Holocaust a criminal offence (Letters, 4, 7, 10 February). But anyone who says that a well- attested historical event did not take place is clearly unfitted to teach at any level, from school to university. He or she would also lack the balanced understanding needed by those who work for central or local government. Clearly what is needed is some measure to exclude those who deny that the Holocaust happened from work to which their unbalanced minds are unsuited.
