Merger name challenge for Privy Council

The Privy Council is no dispute resolution service, though it might find itself cast as one should the ICAEW and CIPFA pull off their planned merger. The institutes’ preferred name, the Institute of Chartered Accountants, is upsetting ICAS and others and any change would have to be approved by the Privy Council. Sitting in the middle of this will be council clerk Alex Galloway, a man of fearsome intellect.

That much was confirmed last week after the Privy Council won the final of the BBC 2 series University Challenge: The Professionals.  ‘The victory was an exhilarating experience,’ says Galloway. You can’t imagine him quite so excited by resolving (or not) internecine disputes among the institutes.
