WITH REFERENCE to the letter from Christopher Jackson MEP (15 August) concerning the prevention of illegal immigrants.

What is it that:

a) appeared on all my monthly payslips

b) was required when I recently went to sign on at the labour exchange

c) appears on all correspondence from the Inland Revenue

d) is required when registering with a doctor, optician or dentist

e) appears on my annual Tessa statements?

The answer? My National Insurance number.

What, if any, are the qualifications to become an MEP?
