You get your 400 words and that's your lot

  • Comment

In response to Annette Fisher's letter 'Cut off in the prime of my ballot paper' (AJ 18.4.02), the RIBA rules are clear. Candidates are allotted 400 words for their manifesto statements. To ensure fairness to all candidates, the number of words allowed is strictly adhered too and the statement terminated at that point. In this instance, it occurred just after the start of the sentence.

Robert Adam, honorary secretary, RIBA
