WITH regard to Peter Randall and his privatised industry (Letters, 19 March), I spent 47 years in a nationalised industry. Yes conditions were good, as he says - good holidays, good sick pay, good opportunities, the pay was adequate and I've got a good, safe pension.

The industry made £3bn a year for the Treasury, which, with the other nationalised industries, helped to keep taxes down. Now industry profits go into private back pockets. The obvious answer is to bring back Clause IV so that we can all work for the common good of all our people and not just the few.
