If a Council meeting is due, L'Evallier will have made notes several days previously and will spend the day going through these. He likes to keep meetings sharp and to the point. It has been noted the meetings he runs are noticeably shorter. This is appreciated by the Queen (though it not the reason L'Evallier does this. He has never seen the point of talking for its own sake. Meetings should always achieve something and not for setting a record as to how long they go on for!).
