This article was initiated by Richard Gardner, Director of the York Centre, who comments as follows: 'Mrs. Hedge has just completed a report' on a two-year research project into continuing education. Her study concentrated mainly but not exclusively on the needs and problems of architects. But it has also brought her into direct contact with other professions and with organizations such as BRE whose work is relevant to us all. Different professions and different kinds of practice/office/firms surely have different needs. But do the conclusions drawn by Mrs. Hedge and the suggestions she is making here have a kind of universal importance for all the building professions? And is the York Centre right to see them as pointers towards a new, more complete and more flexible provision of multi-disciplinary continuing education; and also as demonstrating fairly conclusively what its own role and programme of work should be?'
Mr. T. N. W. Akroyd (F) gave us an authoritative statement on the duties of a local authority under the Building Regulations (November 1975) which stimulated us to probe yet further the issue of checking calculations. He has taken this point and dealt with it as succinctly as ever: My note (November 1975) was intended to express in simple words the answer to the question: 'Has a local authority a legal obligation in the execution of its duty under the Building Regulations to check calculations made by a qualified person?' Since you appear clearly and unmistakably to exhibit signs of someone who has not understood my previous letter let me please try to help further.
