Let­ter of the week Don’t make a meal of it

For­got­ten farm­ers

IWROTE to COUN­TRY LIFE

a year ago, say­ing that the word ‘meal’ was un­ac­cept­able in English so­ci­ety. It is lunch. Or din­ner. Tea is not a meal. Char­lotte Bathurst, Glouces­ter­shire

MARY LLOYD’S let­ter of Au­gust 10 sug­gested that the Swin­don-based of­fi­cials of the Na­tional Trust were not in­ter­ested in farm­ing. Dame Helen Ghosh’s re­ply (Au­gust 24) gives a lengthy de­fence of the Trust’s record on coun­try houses, but farm­ing isn’t men­tioned, nor are the ques­tions of its re­la­tions with its ten­ant farm­ers, nor the growing con­flict between farm­ing and wildlife. It seems that Mary Lloyd was right. Peter Knight, Cheshire
