Sir: Will Toni Carver ("Stormy waters in Cornish marginal seat", 7 April) confirm the reason for David Harris standing down as MP for St Ives? His wife was ill; unfortunately she has since died. Mr Harris may well wish to be back in Parliament, but he has never tried to get back the St Ives nomination. Like many others who have known him, I sincerely hope David Harris may return to Parliament; we need men and women who maintain his standards of decency and integrity.
