Letter: Storm damage

Click to follow
Sir: Your business pages tell us that 'West Indies storm will hit Geest profits' (17 September), following a tropical storm in which 40 per cent of the company's banana production from the Windward Islands has been destroyed. Although the story makes no mention of it, the damage will also have a grievous impact on the Windward economy and on its farmers and plantation workers who are so dependent upon this single crop.

Please don't limit your interest to the Geest share price: let us have news of the consequences for the people of the Windward Islands.

Yours faithfully,


Kilmacolm, Strathclyde
