I assure you all I was not aware that a name had been put forward for
who was to "spoke" to "imc process" on this. Not to say that I might not
have seen Petros propose Nick for this work at some point, just that if
that such an email did come I had forgotten having read it.
It's not clear to me what other work might remain with this role, but
certainly if Nick wants to do that still, or the issue needs to be
reopened for someone else to be considered I'll gladly stand aside and
support that, just say.
Hope all here will accept my apology on this.
