Welsh warning

Sir: In reporting Rod Richards's resignation (3 June), you quote David Evans, ex-parliamentary private secretary of the Welsh Office, as saying: "People who accept high office... wear an England shirt."

This says much about Tory misrule of Wales. Mr Richards's private life is of little import compared with the imposition by this government of four successive Secretaries of State for Wales who hail from England. Perhaps Mr Evans is advocating the infamous Tebbit test of sporting allegiance. We await the sporting colours worn by Mr Richards's replacement with interest.
