Electric share


The Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE) is expecting to amalgamate with its companion Institution of Incorporated Engineers (IIE) and, via a supplementary charter, is petitioning for the name of the combined institution to be the 'Institution of Engineering & Technology'.

As one of many engineers in favour of a single chartered engineering institution and as a member of the ICE and a fellow of the IEE, I strongly object to one dominated by one element of the profession.

The request for the grant of a supplementary charter is dependent on the agreement of a majority of the members of both the IEE and the IIE. The IEE meeting is to take place on 21 September and acceptance is confidently expected.

So objections ought to be submitted to the Privy Council without delay.

Thomas CJ Cogle (M), 5 Stoke Road, Winchester SO23 7ET
