PG Wode­house would have heartily ap­proved

The Sunday Telegraph - - Letters To The Editor -

SIR – The Health Sec­re­tary Matt Han­cock’s sug­ges­tion on pro­vid­ing fruit for work­ers (re­port, November 4) brings to mind PG Wode­house and Sir Roderick Spode, who be­lieved it was the right of every worker to have a Bri­tish bi­cy­cle, a Bri­tish um­brella and Brus­sels sprouts.

SIR – Matt Han­cock should get his house in or­der be­fore sug­gest­ing how other com­pa­nies might keep their work­ers healthy. NHS staff don’t get free fruit; on the con­trary, they are threat­ened with dis­ci­plinary ac­tion if they take so much as a tea bag from a hospi­tal ward.

Per­haps free fruit would help to re­duce the ex­o­dus of dis­il­lu­sioned Bri­tish doc­tors over­seas. Dr Ge­orge Dav­i­son

Carmen Mi­randa un­der­stood the im­por­tance of hav­ing a sup­ply of fruit in the workplace
