I just saw Malcolm Pein's chess column online at the Telegraph.co.uk. He asked an interesting question - why are funds that were evidently put into a special Trust to fund junior chess activities not being released and used for those purposes by the English Chess Federation? I do not know the particulars, so there may be valid reasons for not doing so on ECF's part - litigation, for instance. But I think Pein deserves an answer.
