Q & A

From time to time a visitor will ask a question or seek information which we feel may be of interest to a wider circle of readers. So we will share here with all our readers the kind of questions and the answers that we have given to them.

A selection of these questions and the answers they were given will be published here. Needless to say, we never publish the names of enquirers: all questions remain anonymous.
