Institution Response to Finniston

In its comment to the Department of Industry on the recommendations of Engineering our future-the report of the Deportmental Inquiry under the Chairmanship of Sir Monty Finniston-the Council of the Institution, in concert with the Institutions of Civil and Municipal Engineers, said that to establish a new Engineering Authority, as proposed, to monitor education and training and to register professional engineers in the United Kingdom was wholly misconceived and dangerous. Control of such matters should be left in the hands of the engineering profession.
