Authors' introduction: When writing a paper it is important to have a clear attitude as to whom one is writing for who will use it and, hopefully, learn from it.
I read the paper with interest and would like to make some comments from my experience in the construction and strengthening of these structures.
Mr. T. N. W. Akroyd (F): I have listened with interest to Dr. Bate, and whilst it is customary at this beginning of term to extend the Christmas spirit of goodwill to our discussions, I regret tonight's discussion hardly allows room for the Christmas euphoria to continue. The theme of Dr. Bate's introduction is, that workmanship clauses in Codes of Practice and the usual site inspections of workmanship under those Codes are unsatisfactory. I noted with a certain grim satisfaction that Dr. Bate has suggested that the drafting of workmanship clauses is open to commercial, political and other pressures.
