I read with interest the article in which Richard Steer was having a whinge about how the prevalence of low bidding was having a dramatic impact upon levels of professional QS fees

I say, welcome to the real world, Mr Steer. Specialist contractors have existed in this world for decades – a world that has been created, manipulated and fashioned by members of Steer’s profession. Perhaps QSs are now getting some of their own medicine?
