Hi Gill,
Thanks - yes one of the issues that came up was that there was a proposal to "do away with" SDFs - apparently Dina Porteous had a document that she was going to send to you. Is it possible that you could forward a copy to me please? Many thanks.

Please feel free to join the Western Cape group & as many other groups as you are interested in - I see you've found the SDFs - and of course, please invite your friends & colleagues to join. I look forward to your contribution to our forum, groups and blogs.
