Away today and tomorrow, but this sounds fine.
The hours/days are very low for me, else it will all
go to UEA and we'll never see the money.
This is the same on the WG contract, which
we've just received from Chris. So for consistency
keep that. Colin's and my work will be on all
5 areas, Colin more on 1, 3 and 4 and me on 2/5.
I'll need Colin though to do things for me on
my areas.

Chris has also a very low personal budget on the WG.
Maybe one day UEA and Newcastle will complain, but
I doubt anyone will notice.

Back in CRU on Friday.
