[r-t] New Alan Reading Composition

Further to my email yesterday here is a list of possible substitutions into
the composition to increase variety/interest and reduce right place work
whilst maintaining the run count.
Prarial -> &-5-4.5-56.3-4-5.4.36-3, 2
Portwall -> &56-5.6.5-56.3.4-34.58-36-1, 1
Cornubia -> &-3-4-2-3.4-126.96.36.199.4.5, 1 (as discussed yesterday)
Commerical Rooms -> &-36-456-5-3.4-188.8.131.52.4.5, 2
Bank -> &3-5.4-56-6-4-1.56-6.5, 2 (as discussed yesterday)
Most combinations of these substitutions are possible although the Portwall
alternative cannot be rung with Bank.
