If the article was intended to tell members the rationale for the increases, it didn't. I suggest he doesn't waste our money on tramping round the country to try to alter members' opinions unless there is practical information to be disclosed.
Jeremy Hackett (15 August, page 33) asked for at least 860 more signatories to his motion opposing the increases. Less than 10% of members approved the extraordinary general meeting proposal and now is the time for the other 90% to have their say.
