 There are some interesting new

I've been told we cannot redistribute the redraft.

That's interesting -- because in the document itself, the only text
referring to restriction in distribution says:


  (c) Crown copyright 2004

  The text in this document may be reproduced free of charge in any
  format or media without requiring specific permission. This is
  subject to the material not being used in a derogatory manner or
  in a misleading context. The source of the material must be
  acknowledged as Crown copyright and the title of the document must
  be included when being reproduced as part of another publication
  or service.


Even the usual anally retentive civil servant shouldn't be able to misconstrue that one!
(Oops. Was that derogatory?)

Thanks for bringing it to our attention.
