1) The Marketing Strategy meeting should take place in Room 208.
2) The whiteboard with an array of coloured markers needs to be set up in Room 210, but hasn’t been asked for by the Business Strategy team.
3) The Brexit Taskforce is growing ever larger in number and will need extra chairs to be delivered to its meeting room. Its meeting is taking place in the room whose number is the next one lower than the meeting that’s getting the mineral water.
4 The meeting that has ordered a buffet lunch also needs a large pile of Post-it notes, not only to record ideas but also to label the different sandwiches.
5 Having seen the box of doughnuts being delivered to another meeting, the team in Room 102 wish they’d done the same.

In last week’s puzzle, it was Boris who enjoyed playing poker on the ‘Let’s give £350 million a week to the NHS’ battle bus.
Congratulations to Kimberley Williams of Amundi, who was randomly selected from last week’s correct answers to receive the prize mug.
Here’s why: Nigel retired to France (clue 2) and the person who regretted the TV appearance made his post-political living as a game show panellist (clue 2), so Boris, who regretted the row on Twitter (clue 3) but who didn’t get a cushy job in the City (clue 3), must have become a motivational speaker. Michael’s happy memory is all about backstabbing (clue 1), so the person with the happy memory of the helicopter ride and who got a cushy job in the City after leaving politics (clue 3) must have been Liam, leaving happy backstabber Michael regretting the TV appearance but making up for it with a career as a game show panellist.
The slap-up lunch was happily remembered by the same person who regretted the terrible photo-op (clue 4), so Liam must have regretted the big promises made during the campaign. By elimination, the slap-up lunch eater and photo-op regretter must have been Nigel, who retired to his beloved France, leaving Boris enjoying the poker on the battle bus, regretting getting all uppity on Twitter and eventually becoming a motivational speaker to keep the post-political wolf from the door.
