FRANK DOBSON's suggestion that medical graduates owe the country a debt that other graduates do not is unreasonable ("Drop-out doctors cost NHS pounds 70m", 18 October). Most students contribute little to the costs of their degree and all have a right to choose their course without having to follow a particular career. The only fair way to bring in an enforced period of government service is do it to every student. This is National Service. If the Government wishes to re-introduce this they should do it openly. They should not bring it about by a process of moral blackmail.
