Sir: Why did Tim Garton Ash (7 July) describe Action as 'Mosley's short-lived periodical'? After Sir Harold Nicolson there were several editors up to the journal's demise when its staff were imprisoned (without any charge or trial) in 1940. It was revived when Sir Oswald Mosley founded his post-war movement in 1948, to advocate the union of Europe.

In 1966 Mosley withdrew from all party warfare to appeal (above parties) for a government of true national unity, drawn from the whble nation. Action continues to flourish and to propagate those ideals. Jeffrey Hamm Secretary, Action Society, 76A Rochester Row, London SW1
