    Also, we must ensure that our typists will be on duty at our beck and call! (I yam about ready to fire mine)

    May I propose an extension to the lap availability… Laps must remain available even if said candidates feel need to visit lavatory or have other jobs to do.

  3. Candidates should make sure that there is a suitable amount of heat provided through the winter. Open fires or radiator beds are suitable and either electric blankets or hot water bottles in staff beds. Hot water bottles under thin pillows or duvets on sofas are considered a necessity on coldest days

  4. Dreamies, while tasty are high in carbohydrate and should be avoided by the diabetic or borderline amongst us so we generalise to snacks.

  5. Do you think there should be more explicit mention of the necessity of the frequent provision of Dreamies?
