IT was revealed yesterday that the Queen and the Royal Family cost the taxpayer 62p per person last year - a drop of 7p. What do you think? Martina Cascarino, a 21-year-old student from Stockton: "I wish all the other taxes could be that cheap."

Charles Bircham, a 68-year-old retired fitter from Middlesbrough: "I think it is a tax we shouldn't have."

Emma Walker, a 23-year-old activities co-ordinator from Ormesby: "The Queen keeps our stability so if that money keeps her, then I think it is OK."

James Bates, a 26-year-old house husband from Stockton: "I think it is really cheap considering how much we spend on tourism."

Danielle Harrison, 21, from Stockton: "I didn't even know that specific tax existed, but I don't think it is a lot anyway."

Jennifer Harland, a 19-year-old student from Guisborough: "I think it is quite a lot actually."
