] Taking Stock Budget Special – Jackets off at the English ICA as

As debate rages over what colour tie the chancellor will wear when he stands up to deliver his Budget speech, the English ICA has been debating a dress code issue of its own. TS was told by a well-placed source that the closed session of last week’s council meeting involved talks about how members should dress when attending council meetings following the Arthur Andersen smart-casual wear rule. Proving that it is a modern organisation, the council decided members should be allowed to remove their jackets when in the chamber. But male members will still not be allowed to remove their ties. And in a move of progressiveness, women can now wear trousers. TS will be sticking to its pinstripe suit next time council convenes. ?:
