Judging the judge

I was delighted by Communication Workers Friendly Society chief executive Edward Chapman voicing his opinion that the Government might not be taking the most appropriate action with Sandler products (Money Marketing, January 29).

It ought to be remembered that Sandler has his personal pension with Equitable Life and does not have the ideal background to comment on fundamental industry issues. Why does the Government place such faith in his judgement?

It is refreshing to see that an industry executive is still capable of independent thought and is also able to have that idea published.
