quote = In Britain, Family Action Information and Resource (FAIR) is not on the Net. FAIR has only recently acquired the technology to produce its new-style desk-top published quarterly Newsletters: until late 1994 FAIR News was a 'church hall' style publication. FAIR claims to run on a financial shoe-string, and at the moment disseminates information about NRMs by traditional means, providing occasional information about NRM-related Internet affairs and the odd site address, such as CAN's.
