Confusion has arisen over the reason for MAG’s decision to raise the membership fees

Our earlier press release identified the unrealistically low level of the membership subscription, £20 per annum for individuals, as the reason for the rise.

Some editors have misunderstood the reason as being a low number of members.  In fact, MAG membership numbers have remained steady in recent years but the fee is unrealistically low at £20 and will rise to £25 from Nov 1 in order to restore the cost of membership in real terms to where it was in the year 2000.
