SIR, - Re your story "Driveway boss must pay £1.5m" (Herts Advertiser, March 13). Fantastic news that Conners was convicted of breaching the Trades Descriptions Act but the £1.5 million is to be split between the Government and Herts Police, the court service and the Crown Prosecution Service. Why?

Unless I am becoming senile by the day, I thought we had already paid for both central and local government involvement via both central and local government taxation. Or is this just another form of additional indirect taxation by stealth?

What about the victims? Surely, as their insurance companies would not have paid, the proceeds should go to them.
