A sensible step by the Society's Council

From Mr J. E. Balmford, FRPharmS

Further to my letter in The Journal (4 December 2004, p816), I welcome the report of the August Council meeting (PJ, 13 August, p201). The new Council has certainly listened to the views expressed by members at the annual general meeting and branch representatives’ meeting and in letters to The Journal.

I will not be resigning from the Register on 31 December 2005, but will continue in membership until I join the heavenly register in the sky.

In spite of the views expressed by your editorial (PJ, 4 December, p802), when you said “How any of these will actually convert their threats into reality remains to be seen and an accurate figure will not be known for some months”, we will not know how many members would have resigned had the Council not taken this sensible step to keep so many non-practising septuagenarians on the Register.

I hope that, with the changes agreed, a large number of overseas members will also feel able to remain registered in Britain.

John. E. Balmford
Past President
Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire
