Good evening/morning, it's Paul and Jack here with the SCVR for Tuesday.

I'm putting up the first few sections late on Monday night. The reason being that something has cropped up, and I have to spend c.4 hours travelling on Tuesday (essential), hence won't have much time for writing about shares.
