Watch this space on designations

May I express my thanks to all those readers who have written to me in response to my letter (Money Marketing, April 28) concerning the designations the PFS is seeking to impose on its members.

The position is that I am in touch with John Ellis and I have passed on the comments expressed to me without, of course, revealing the names of my correspondents.

I am promised that the comments will be discussed and further advices will follow.

I remain totally opposed to the new designations and although it would save a great deal of time and trouble if the PFS would simply accept that the designations should be suspended until consultation has taken place and agreement reached, I remain willing to pursue this matter constitu- tionally if necessary.

A question then of watch this space.
