Thanks Tom - yes, I'll come to Romney House for 3.30pm or so. We can at least catch up
with where TC and CT have reached and maybe sketch out a couple of ideas for the future. I
should be away by 4.30 since I have a 5pm meeting elsewhere.

I'm pretty tied up on Monday but could do a short hour at 3.30 - could I suggest that
you come here to Romney House in Marsham St. I'll ask David Vincent to join us.

Tom, I wonder whether Monday 12th Nov. about 3.30pm or 4pm would be
suitable to meet up? A courtesy visit really for no more than an hour. It would be
useful to explore a little bit more with you the lie of the
land. Let me know if this is OK.
Where about are you - the DEFRA offices in Victoria Street?
I will send you a copy of our new consolidated research strategy beforehand.
