The time limits for the Birmingham, Wolverhampton and Dudley leagues have been brought into line, only the "default" position now varies.

In summary:

BIRMINGHAM: Away side still opts for one session  or two (adjournments). Where one session is chosen (vast majority) the home side may choose either: (A) all moves in 80 minutes with 10 seconds added per move (incremental) OR (B) all moves in 90 minutes.

WOLVERHAMPTON: (A) all moves in 80 minutes with 10 seconds added per move (incremental) - if sufficient digital clocks are available OR (B) all moves in 90 minutes.

DUDLEY: (A) all moves in 90 minutes OR (B) all moves in 80 mins with 10 seconds added per move if sufficient clocks available and both teams agree.

WORCESTER COUNTY: no change.
