Open Discussion on Code Workmanship Clauses - Fact or Fiction by S.C.C. Bate

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.
