Dr Christopher Ray Letter to the Telegraph 30th April 2013

In a letter to the Telegraph, 30/04/13, HMC's Chairman and High Master of The Manchester Grammar School, responds to recent claims that private school pupils are at a greater risk from the ongoing measles outbreak.

SIR – Professor John Ashton, the public health representative, (reports, April 27 and 29) seems to believe that because many parents nationally failed to ensure that their children received MMR immunisation, independent schools are therefore potential “reservoirs of disease”.

What is especially worrying in his unjustified assault upon the independent sector is his preference for mere opinion over hard evidence.

Independent schools should now brace themselves for further revelations that they are responsible for global warming and the fall of the Roman Empire
