ARB delighted at decision over PII

  • Comment

The ARB has welcomed a lawyer's findings that the board has not exceeded its powers with its insistence on policing professional indemnity insurance (PII) cover.

The findings of Timothy Dutton QC is the latest in a long-running feud between the ARB and architect Ian Salisbury that has cost about £30,000.'It's good news and I was 99.99 per cent sure we had done nothing wrong, 'said ARB chief executive Robin Vaughan.'

Vaughan said he hoped the cost of the dispute would not mean higher fees.'I hope registrants won't pay more, either because we can take the money out of reserves or draw it out of next year's budget.Salisbury's done quite enough harm to the profession without it being taxed.'

Salisbury could not be contacted for comment.
