Lehman joint administrator Tony Lomas narrowly avoided being voted off the
ICAEW council after his work kept him away for the sixth council meeting in a

Lomas, a council member and PricewaterhouseCoopers partner, was unable to
attend his sixth ICAEW meeting in a row as his work on the Lehman Brothers
administration again kept him away from Moorgate Place.

Under its rules, his sixth non-attendance in a row meant a vote had to be
taken as to whether he should remain on council.

against and 7 abstained.

The vote in favours ‘clears’ his record, and another vote cannot be taken
unless he fails to attend another six meetings.
