Sir: On 31 October 1987 Woman's Own printed the statement by Baroness Thatcher that "there is no such thing as society". On 31 October 1996 you printed part of the proposed "code of values" on which the School Curriculum and Assessment Authority is consulting. It declares that "we value families ... as the basis of a society in which people care for others". Have the Conservatives recreated society in exactly nine years?
