24a.Owen (poet) - O(love) + new (fresh) reversed.
Question Author
Linesman as poet. I’m sure the profession will be pleased with that! The e/a conundrum still gives me doubt. The clue, I think, is ambiguous in its emphasis and consequently its intended direction. But thanks for your help, as ever.
Yes, I agree that it's ambiguous
Don't see any ambiguity really.
Stationery (writing material) sounds like(delivered) stationary(still)
Question Author

Highbury, why do you think that it is ambiguous?
Question Author

The definition is either at the start or the end of a clue - in this case it's 'Writing material'
