    They are just proposals at the moment and IF they go ahead (they may not) no one knows what may happen.

    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi @Lornabatey31, welcome to the community! As Poppy says they are just proposals now, there are many 'ifs' that must be answered before anything else happens.

    They/Them, however they are no wrong pronouns with me so whatever you feel most comfortable with
