Hi James,

Thanks to both of you for a fantastic job. I second Elena: I think you 
should do this every time. (;-))

I noticed this:

	"for the next couple weeks"

which seems to need "of" (unless it's OK in US English).

And this:

	"LR spared Council from summarising in depth "

which I think suggests that Council would be doing the summarizing. 
Should it be:

	"LR spared Council an in-depth summary of "

Everything else looks perfect.
