Scottish subscription returns significant

Robert Booth (AJ 15.6.00) should perhaps stick to words rather than numbers. The sums involved in membership subscription returns from the Scottish Chartered Architects are not huge - but potentially significant, nonetheless! (His figure of £230,000 should have read £23,000? ) What the RIAS calls itself is a matter for its own members - subject, of course to Privy Council sanction. The wish of RIAS Council to enable those whose names are already on the register and who were born in Scotland or completed a course of architecture in Scotland is quite understandable - but currently not permissible under RIAS Byelaws which are subject not only to Privy Council but also to RIBA sanction. Thus far, the RIBA has been unwilling to relax on this issue.

On the question of funding - discussions continue!

Sebastian Tombs, secretary and treasurer, Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland
