I TRUST it won't seem churlish of me to write to correct two points in your ((mtherwise quite excellent) article, on the whole problem of school transport for infants and juniors (February I).
On the question of whether the impending loss of our school bus would have immediate effects 1 replied: "No, but it will in two years or so, especially with the 'rising Fives'."
On the question of how it would affect school numbers in the long run I replied: "In six or seven years' time, we will be a shadow of our former selves (say. down to 100 pupils, from our present 167 pupils.)" What I was trying to make perfectly clear was that we will be seriously hit, J. W. Lett Botcherby, Carlisle.
