Letters to the Editor
From Paul Williams. DEPUTY Kevin Lewis and the Transport department are harbouring a dangerous idea in proposing to introduce UK-style penalty points to deter speeding (JEP 27 November).
From David Lakin. WHY does Senator Philip Ozouf need to borrow £250 million to fund his social housing programme when he gets £40-50 million a year in rents from the ordinary people who presently reside in States housing?
