In the Building Regulations (2000) passed on 1 July 2000, the approved Standard Document on Fire Safety was superseded by the approved document to support Part B on Fire Safety.

There is a requirement to provide emergency egress windows to habitable rooms on the ground and first floor levels of up to two storey dwellings unless a protected route is provided from those rooms to the final exit.

See attached leaflet http://www.bwf.org.uk/assets/08 Emergency Egress (escape) windows.pdf

By implication, the latching system must not be key lockable. It is not clear from the regulations but fitting safety glass and supplying a means to break that glass may be an alternative.

The best solution is probably that taken by Y-K-M and only lock the windows when you are out but make sure they are ready for egress when in occupation.

I found some other references. In ‘Eigtheenth Century German Prose’ By Ellis Shookman, it says, in a work ‘A Voyage round the world’ by Georg Forster:

“Seeing us all seated he ran into his house, and brought out a quantity of breadfruit baked, which he laid before us on fresh banana leaves. To this he added a matted basket full off the vee or Taheitee apple, a fruit of the Spondias genus, which resembles the pineapple, in the taste, and entreated us to partake of these refreshments”

Taheitee is the old spelling for Tahiti. Genus Spondias are tropical trees having one-seeded fruit (such as plums).

I also found the following from the log of the ship EMERALD
(Source: http://www.rotuma.net/os/Eagleston.htm)

Writing about Rotumah, it says “Productions here are Yams Tarro, sort of potatoes, Pumpkins, Breadfruit, Plantains, Bananas, large plum called Vee …”

(Rotuma is a Fijian Dependency located in the Pacific Ocean approximately 465 kilometres north of Fiji)

So it seems the Vee fruit was a large plum from the South Pacific area.

I've searched through the Internet too and, like the previous answer, I can only find case studies and similar articles that require a subscription membership or a fee to download the full article. I think the previous answer is likely to be as good as you get.

If they are word documents, you can open the document and select File > Properties. On the statistics tag it will tell you the editing time.
