Reply to Bromby

Sir,—Mr Bromby accuses me of destructive criticism, and of merely setting out facts which are already well known. His own attack hardly ranks as criticism at all, being merely a personal and spurious harangue. If he were more j perceptive and less ferocious he: would realise that the purpose of! such an article as that which he criticises, is not to bring forward new information, but to bring to, people's attention, facts and correlations of facts which the writer considers to need emphasis. His mention of Cuba is irrelevant, as this country has never been a welfare state. The U.S.A., on the other hand, particularly since the New Deal, is generally considered to be one, if not to the same extent as Britain or New Zealand.—Yours, etc.,

John Murphy.
