Birth control not the answer

MRS D DAVIES is wrong to believe that the problem of world poverty can be solved by introducing birth control.
It cannot because contrary to popular opinion malnutrition and starvation are not the result of over-population, of poor climate or lack of cultivated land. The reason why hunger exists on such a vast scale is because world food supplies are controlled by the rich and powerful for the wealthy consumer. Terry Banfield, Cardigan Crescent, Cwmbran
