Hosted, appropriately, by the BTS Young Members, a packed audience of all ages and affiliations discussed an issue that has generated significant discussion among junior and senior members and is encompassed by the motion: This house believes that the UK tunnelling industry has the sufficient range of engineering expertise and resources to meet the challenges of future projects. As the meeting unfolded, nationalism, internationalism, ageism, and historic reference, all came into the discussion as Neville Harrison (Consultant) and Harnaik Mann (Arup and Vice-Chair of the BTS Young Members committee) proposed the motion and Jon Banyai (Mott MacDonald and Chair of the BTS YM Support Group) and John Edwards (Morgan Est) presented the opposition

Here technical editor Maurice Jones reviews the state of some developments designed to meet such demands
