I WAS most interested and pleased to read mention of my paper, Liberal Democrat News, in your last edition (23 October). I would like to point out to your readers that subscription to Liberal Democrat News is not a perk of membership, since it operates independently of the Liberal Democrat membership.

Most of our readers subscribe directly to the newspaper. Many others purchase the paper through their newsagents. Since Liberal Democrat News is the only remaining national weekly party political newspaper and the only journal which publishes the weekly results of all local by-elections we are proud to be used as a resource by council officers, university lecturers, foreign embassies and even Labour and Conservative Party headquarters alike.
