It is not fair to expect MOs to make public copies of their internal budgets as a condition of membership of FYEG. We agree with the transparency of membership fees but ciculation of MO budgets is not necessary for this.
The draft resolution suggests considering additional factors which we do not believe constitutes a progressive system based around ability to pay as the resolution aims to do. Size of the budget is a far stronger indicator of ability to pay than membership size and includes in it state funding of political parties which differs hugely in existance and size between FYEG MOs. We do however believe that the flat 1% could be reformed to a more progressive banded fee.
