Have your say

After reading “Nature Notes” (October 7), without hunting for my copy of “Silent Spring”, I think the chemicals Malcolm Cox is referring to were “chorinated hydrocarbons” – not to be confused with “organophosphates”.

While I am in contact, I would like to mention that I was incorrectly quoted regarding public toilets at the recent borough council panel meeting. What I said, as part of a suggestion to consider the public in this matter, was that people are stressed by needing to go to the toilet when there are no toilets . (Pretty obvious I accept, but much is said these days about reducing stress).
