Thomas Creevey suggests that William Hague, the Secretary of State for Wales, may have a problem in matching Michael Forsyth's success in returning the Stone of Scone to Scotland (24 November).

For a start, Downing Street could arrange the return of the so-called "Litchfield Gospels". These Gospels, produced in Llandeilo, are a magnificent example of early medieval artistry. Their importance to Wales is comparable to the importance of the Book of Kells to Ire- land. They should be returned.
