I WAS astonished to read, "Frank Field to advise Lib Dems" (15 August). As social security select committee chair throughout the last years of Tory government, Field championed (and under New Labour continues to support) the hated Child Support Act and its dreadful agency. The Lib Dems announced in 1995 that they stood for abolition of the CSA. Is it any wonder that fewer and fewer people have seen any point in voting at successive general elections since the Second World War?
