Dear Sir: Your front-page story 'Royal Mint's feathers ruffled by Lamont' (12 February) appears to confirm, if only confirmation was actually necessary, the belief that the Government's ministers are unwilling to listen to, let alone take, any advice from anyone on any subject.

The real reason that the 'green shoots' do not flourish is the stony minds on which they fall.

Yours faithfully,


Welwyn Garden City,


12 February
