Sir: With reference to Lord Howe's remarks about the Scott inquiry, the witnesses spoke for themselves and their masters when the policy and commercial decisions were taken and the deals were made. Surely they can speak for themselves now. An extension of Conservative policy on the right to silence, the bluster of Lord Howe and the evasion of Baroness Thatcher should be interpreted as an aversion to honesty and openness in this matter.

Yours sincerely,
