I guess we have to be realistic; this is SPAB's position and they are going

I think you are right about that Andrew. It would be interesting to know
just how many ringers ARE currently members of SPAB and how many of those
would actually agree with its official stance on bell frames. How does SPAB
deal with dissenters in its own ranks I wonder?

Leaving aside the question of its present "fitness for purpose" for the
moment, perhaps there is a case for the CC seeking "statutory consultee"
status alongside SPAB and the Victorian Society, EH, etc.
