Sir: John Major has been widely and rightly commended for his condemnation of two of his junior colleagues for threatening to withhold their support across the "Parliamentary board" in pursuance of a single political object dear to their hearts ("Pork-barrel politics come to Britain", 14 June).

Sir FREDERIC BENNETT
