SIR - Labour lost seats in Stevenage but did you deliberately omit the fact that they won the seat in Chells back from the Lib Dems, even the summary of the results showed in blue Tory gains, but no red for the Chells Ward.

Obviously the electorate in Chells voted on local issues and had an excellent candidate and had enough of the waffling of the Lib Dem councillor.

Councillor Parker said it was disappointing that voters had voted on national issues when in their election address they talked of ''Billion pounds of your money spent on the Iraq war, income tax from 10p to 20p for the lowest paid and loss of private data do you trust Labour with ID cards and probably one of the reasons the reason why they lost the seat was they said at the last election ''350 Conservatives wasted their votes.'' Councillor Parker would be better using his time telling the 60% who did not vote to use their democratic right and vote.

EDITOR'S NOTE: It was certainly not a deliberate omission but we apologise for failing to flag up the Labour seat in Chells as a seat gained by Labour and are happy to do so now.
