Bruce Lawson, who is leading the Welsh campaign against the merger, communicated the results of his straw poll to Ian Morris (President of the ICAEW) in a meeting last Thursday.
"The second straw poll we have taken, which I will communicate to Accountancy magazine, has indicated that from 300 practising members, 47 were against, 2 were in favour, 8 were undecided and the rest did not reply. I think it would be unwise to assume that the non-replies mean that they are in favour of the 'consolidation proposals'".
He notes on his website that if the merger proposal is not voted through, then the CEO of the ICAEW should resign.
