Further to discussion at the last board meeting today I spoke with the
data.gov.uk (John Sheridan in particular) about payment situtation.

Below is the summary we agreed. John stated clearly there was no
problem paying -- the problem is an administrative issue largely
related to sorting out MOUs between the relative government parties
and to John's busyness. He now has more time and is going to work on
this as number one priority for next week.

Given his assurance that:

a) we will receive a significant tranche of outstanding monies by end
of June -- which will allow us to easily cover outstanding liabilities
(I believe we are almost covered already)

b) and that remaining monies can be invoiced by end of June

I would recommend to the Board that we continue working as we
currently are, at least until the end of June.

OKF and TNA (or CO or whoever) for ongoing work.
