I had a reply to my Freedom of Information request to the Environment Agency; but it was incomplete - consisting of a few emails of peripheral interest. I have formulated a more rigorous request; but have been baffled by the EA email system. Replies to the sender of the information have bounced back twice, and I could not get anyone there to explain why. I shall therefore put in another completely separate request.
In the meantime, we had a visit from a Norwegian journalist who is doing a feature on Tesco. I don't read Norwegian, so I don't know what he will make of our situation - if he mentions it at all. Any Scandanavian linguists reading this blog should let me have their contact details and I will send the name of the publication concerned.
