Visiting abattoirs | Frances Ryan | Healthy sperm | Economics | School skirts | Body odour
When I was at grammar school over 50 years ago, the fifth form was taken to visit an abattoir on a school trip (Why children should visit abattoirs, 4 July). I’ve been vegetarian ever since.
• As well as more of Amelia Gentleman exposing the disaster of UC (Letters, 6 July), please can we have more from the excellent Frances Ryan on the related issue of the daily despicable treatment of disabled people by the DWP through Atos and Capita? These companies, carrying out benefits assessments rather than helping claimants to improve their quality of life and achieve some degree of independence, simply act as gatekeepers for the Treasury. Frances Ryan’s work, providing evidence and analysis of this, deserves to be front page.
