Letter: Why CDs cost more in Britain

Click to follow
Sir: Following the publication of the heritage select committee's report, we have had the expected whinge from the record industry. I am still puzzled why this should be. The argument seems to be the cost of promoting new artists. If this is the case, why is there such a price difference between cassettes and CDs? Do CDs really cost that much more to manufacture?

Yours sincerely,
