> "[a Fellow] has responded to the article on retuning church bells 
by saying that the registration scheme for ancient bells should be 
supported because ‘the money-saving tendency is for parishes to 
melt down an old bell and use the metal to cast a new one when a ring 
is being modernised, enlarged, or replaced. A great many early bells 
have been lost in this way’. Retuning church bells, he adds,is 
not too great a problem if historical methods are used."

Who is this "expert"?
