PARLIAMENTARY PUSILLANIMITY SIR,—1 wrote to the local Member of Parlia-

ment last week to say how much I deplored the actions of the police and Home Secretary in the recent cases where homes had been searched without warrants, a bookseller fined for selling Lady Chatterley's Lover, the wrong- ful imprisonment of three men and the inade- quate compensation offered to them on their release.

My MP writes back to say that what I 'evidently desire is an infallibility in Parlia- ment, in law, in police, and in certain in- dividuals. Quite honestly you are no more likely to achieve this than to attain an infallible community.'

Or in other words be couldn't care less.— —Yours faithfully,
