REFERENCE Emil Janson's letter (News, March 1).

Gerald Howarth MP works hard for his constituents whatever their political persuasion.

With Mr Howarth's help, we still have the choice to display a GB number plate if we wish — the alternative being the compulsory display of the EU plate, with a very hefty fine if we did not comply.

I personally would like to continue to have the freedom to choose.

The picture referred to was taken originally to illustrate Mr Howarth's campaign success with the issue, he did not send it in himself.

It was taken by me — for another newspaper — as an editorial assignment!

Les Millar, Farnborough.
