AND another thing

Betsan Powys | 17:04 UK time, Thursday, 29 November 2007

Wales@Work are on the plain English warpath.

We'd like to nominate this clarification of questions raised at the Vulnerable Children LCO Committee on 25 October 2007.

Both of the words 'and' and 'or' may be used conjunctively or disjunctively. In the case of partially overlapping concepts of the kind under consideration here we think it is better to use 'and'. Although this may be more a matter of taste when looking purely at the syntactic merits, we think there should be a strong case for departing from the use of 'and' in this word pairing given its use in current enactments on the same topic.

LCOs. Don't you just love them?
