Many thanks, NACW, but I’m not ready to give up yet! I actually had 18(A), 12(D) and 26(D) but was uncertain about them. I have all of the
Unclueds except:

7(A) L??
15(A) ?YBT?
33(D) E?I??

8 (D) Four points for composer and Cockney bee keepers? (4) : ????
9 (D) Camping design (6) : ?N?E?T ( Originally thought of PATENT )
40 (A) President of furniture company no longer active (3) : I??
40a ike(a)

8 Ives (iv = 4 + E S points)
9d intent
Thanks, Matakari - is 'I'm not ready to give up' not a strange way to put it, when so much of the puzzle has been solved for you?!
Matakari, sorry - my last post sounded a little ungracious! I was just a little puzzled as to what was left for you to do.
Well your the one who suggested "PS Maybe you should give up on this one!" neveracrossword!
sorry neveracrossword- when I opened this thread the last one was your 1013 one, your 1017 definately wasnt there or maybe it was covered by an advert
