Pressure the pier

Andrew Roland is right to highlight the huge price increase on the Palace Pier (The Argus, May 8).
I was shocked when I discovered my in-laws visiting from France had actually paid £20 for a wristband for my children who were too small for certain rides.
The current owners seems to have a monopoly which they are exploiting to the full.
A search on the internet shows it is owned by the Brighton Marine Palace and Pier Company, which in turn is owned by another company, which is owned in part by two Jersey-based companies - so we can guess where all the profits go.
I see no signs of sponsorship investment in the community. The only time they have a voice is when another attraction looks set to offer competition. I recommend a debate on what they do for the town on which they are so reliant.
