I suspect I am the Arts Council employee referred to in Michael Billington’s fascinating reflection on theatre over the years (My 10,000 nights at the theatre, 10 December). However, I fear that I have been misquoted, and I want to reassure him, and your readers, that we plan to continue supporting theatres that both matter to people and stage first-rate work. We wish him many years to come of theatregoing, without the first-night deadlines.

• Tut-tut. The little boy on Monday’s front page holding a, presumably, self-made sign saying “get the Tory’s out” misused an apostrophe. A timely and heartening reminder that, ultimately, it’s the message that counts.

• So, if I’ve got Amazon Prime, does this mean I’ll be seen by a GP within 24 hours (Contract gives Amazon access to NHS data, 9 December)?
