Cost of buying school jumper
I have, today, had to travel to Exeter for the single purpose of buying a college jumper for my son. The cost of this journey - �31.70. This sum includes fuel, parking fees and the jumper.

What I want to know is why, oh why, do we have to travel to Exeter to Pinder & Tuckwell when, in Exmouth, we have Bailey's which supplies such very good quality school clothing? Why are Bailey's not allowed to sell the college jumpers. Where is the freedom of choice?
When I asked the very polite gentleman who served me about not being able to purchase in Exmouth, he informed me his company visit the college at the start of the year term in summer.
When phoning the college, I was advised the Exeter company were the chosen supplier.
Surely we should be given a choice of where we can buy! What cost to the environment?

Is it not restrictive trade practice to have only one supplier?
A few years ago, the college had its own shop. Why was this closed?
Can we have answers please, Mr Alexander.
