Sir -Mrs Lanning raises a valuable question when she asks 'What has happened to the Government's initiative that every child matters?' and has any consideration of this agenda been given by Hertfordshire County Council with regard to their decision to close Sunny Bank School?.

The county council is a Tory-led administration with a cynical disregard for merely abiding with legislation.

Hence a lack of common sense.

Rather like the good old not really bad old days of Thatcher and Major.

What people are currently experiencing is punishment from a spiteful opposition, suffering from the lack of absolute power they once enjoyed, running riot across 'their shire'.
