Letter: Medical condition

Click to follow
Sir: No doubt there have been many suggestions as to how to limit the absurdly large prizes in the National Lottery. My own is to cap them at, say, pounds 3m - a "reward" big enough for anyone - and to devote the difference to charities for medical science.

These charities, and others, are suffering considerably from the introduction of the lottery and it would be appropriate, in any case, that medical science should benefit insofar as many of the big prize winners currently have - or soon will have - money-induced medical conditions.

Yours sincerely,
