The Provincial General Purposes Committee, consequent to the Report of the Provincial Grand Treasurer, recommended that the annual dues payable to Provincial Grand Lodge be set at £14.00 (plus VAT) per subscribing member. There would no longer be a charge made for copies of the Year Book, as it will now be available solely online. This compares with last year’s charges of £13.00 (plus VAT) per subscribing member, plus a charge for the Year Book. All other charges will operate in the normal way. Thus, the overall charges made to Lodges will decrease for the ensuing year.
