23 Neuter looks good
19d Run out? (Project, as in a pier)
I think 19d is RAN OUT, not RUN OUT, because "Dismissed" is in the past tense. If the answer were to be RUN OUT wouldn't the clue be "Dismiss from project" ??
Run out can be used in the past tense, as in "I was run out". And To run out = to project.
