Hi Claire,

Could No.2 be FREEZE UP? (Icy spell/frees from custody of the court)

Old devonian saying - Oak before ash in for a splash, (it goes on) ash before oak in for a soak.

Don't know what the heck it means!!!!!

You just beat me to it Colin -- it's down to which tree comes into leaf first, apparently.

Hi Bullfrog,

I thought it was employing which is the opposite of sacking someone but I am probably wrong. What is the rationale behind expulsion please?

To be honest I don't have a lot of confidence in it, hence the hesitant suggestion. Simply a double definition, but not knowing the crossword, it's difficult to know how cryptic (or not) it might be.
