Architects to be asked to reveal party affiliation

Architects on the profession's ruling council are being asked to reveal
whether they are members of a political party following last year's
discovery that a presidential candidate was active in the far right
British National party.

The move has raised concerns among some of the country's leading
architects, who yesterday accused the Royal Institute of British
Architects of "McCarthyism".

Riba has ruled that council members and anyone standing for election
will be required to make a wide-ranging declaration of interests -
including whether they are members of any political party.
