Important information regarding document production times

Due to further reductions in staffing levels within the public service team, we will unfortunately be unable to produce documents from the strongrooms over the lunchtime period between 12pm and 2.15pm, though the searchroom will remain open.  Some other services may not be available at this time, for example, photocopying.
