Spanz in 2019

Council of Assembly advises that as part of its policy of a balanced operational budget, resource allocated to the Spanz publication has been reduced for the year ended 30 June 2019.  This will mean a reduction from four editions to three in 2019 using the current model.

Please note that this decision does not affect the 2018 Spanz publication dates, and the magazine will be published in November 2018 as scheduled.
