SIR, - I wonder if other readers were as cross as I was when they read the leaflet "your money, your city, district and county" that came with the annual council tax demand?

The large sub-heading was "find out what your money is giving you" - my emphasis on the word "giving". In fact the council is "giving" us nothing - we are buying the services. Maybe it is this attitude that provides then with justification for some sub-standard provision. If so, they need to change it fast.

DIANE MUNDAY,

Brewhouse Hill, Wheathampstead.
