Mr Mike O'Carroll Sir: The media rightly contrast the 75 per cent salary rise of British Gas's chief executive with plans to cut staff pay. But that is not the worst of the scandal. The 75 per cent increase was supposed to make the salary competitive. Itshould not go to someone appointed in competition at a much lower level. To be competitive, the present Chief's contract should be terminated and the job advertised openly. If the Chief really is worth it, he will succeed.

Yours faithfully, MIKE O'CARROLL Welbury, North Yorkshire
