The Bar Council has slashed its operating deficit from £143,000 in 1993/94 to £18,500 for the last nine month period - the changeover period to a new financial year. Treasurer Michael Blair told the Bar AGM this was due to work by previous treasurer Martin Bowley QC and ex-chair Robert Seabrook QC. The deficit reduction was nearly 10 per cent below budget. However, income was also below budget by about £100,000, of which £60,000 was due to a fall in bank interest.
