    1. 7D the annotation was to remove cement from competence which gives OPEC. And OPEC is acronym for Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries.
      Can you elaborate what is the issue Paddy.

      Delete
    2. issue is that it is not an acronym. As you rightly said it is a deletion clue. Acronym clues do not use the same elaboration- as in this clue (OPEC) The clue was not answered.
      1D is, Of course a DD= Throw ball/ Dish
