The mews within which this activity is occuring happens to be where Pat Hunnisett lives. She's in a bit of a hurry and doesn't look terribly happy, but quickly takes an offered chocolate and eats it.
When she arrives at the office, Bradley is making some tea and scolds Pat for being late, who is sent in to see Quist.
Quist is finishing off a call from the Minister and Ridge is not very happy. The team had been seconded to the Ministry of Health into research on cigarette smoking and Quist takes the credit for reducing smoking by 9%. But the Minister wants them to wrap up the investigation and forget about it which Ridge is keen to do. 'But in a professional manner,' adds Quist. Ridge is sent to check the latest sales figures with Bradley. Pat is sent in and apologises for being late, problems with waiting for the Gas Board and London transport. Quist is not impressed 'We may be employed on unimportant work at the moment but that is no excuse for being slapdash.'
