The Defence Secretary Michael Fallon has announced that women serving in the British armed forces could be allowed to fight in close combat roles from 2016 (Your report, 20 December).
I have no difficulty with that.
He then went on to say that “roles in our armed forces should be determined by ability, not gender”. I have no difficulty with that.
So now would all political parties please scrap females-only candidate lists for prospective MPs and choose the best candidate, regardless of gender, on ability?
