Letters: Local variations.

Byline: GRAHAM HEWITT

Graham Hewitt says Coral company policy should be national and not regional

CORAL spokesman Simon Clare stated, in response to a previous letter (Sports Betting, April 9) that Coral businesses are run on a local basis and if a shop is close to an independent that offers football singles, they may make a similar concession. I believe this "local basis" may also apply to first-past-the-post.

What a disgrace. Now punters are being penalised by

areas in which they live. How much longer are the big bookmakers going to treat their punters with such disdain?

Company policy must be across the board and include all shops, whether that be in a village where they have a monopoly of just one shop or in towns and cities where independents may abound.
