I have no recollection of any official suggestion that receipt of Gift Aid could lead directly to a decrease in subs, only an increased income with figures ranging from the realistic to the wildly outrageous. Of course information was coming out from all manner of sources at the time, much of it spinning at cadences I would struggle to maintain.
The various bits of official information from Council to the membership at that time are getting harder to find. Much of it is linked from here, I have no desire to dig further.
