Come off it RIBA, don't we merit a subs cut?

Your report on the increase in RIBA subscriptions (AJ 10.10.02) quotes the RIBA's honorary treasurer John Pringle as suggesting that subs should really be £350 a year - 'representing one per cent of an average architect's income'.

Your report on the North East in the same issue notes that the average architect's salary is £30,000.

By my dodgy maths that's a net income of less than £24,000, representing a subscription payment of £240 a year. So how about a subscription cut of £10 this year? I doubt it!
