It has been drawn to my attention that your magazine suggested I 'triggered a rule change' by tabling a motion calling for collective responsibility for the Architects Registration Board's (ARB) members (AJ 19.2.04).
This was not my motion as your publication suggested. As a board member of the ARB, I was mandated to chair a working party by email to draft a code on confidentiality. The working party made its recommendation, which the full board of the ARB duly accepted, and it is therefore a policy of the board for which all members have collective responsibility.
