Hi everyone

If SAFEGUARD is going to run then we do need input from everyone as soon as possible. I have a certificate to submit electronically so we don't need paper copies - but realistically I need everything by the end of next week:
- comments and input to Part C attached.
- your Part A stuff.
Please send both types of input to me - for Part A I would prefer the Protool form but if you can't do then a PDF will do (although then there will be a delay because I will have to email you back with the protool output to ensure that it is correct).
I will regard receipt of Part A input as authority for us to submit.
