About this clue type

From the preamble to Azed No. 2019

Apart from 1 Across, which is normal, each clue is really two clues, side by side but not overlapping, the answers to which are to be entered in the two similarly numbered spaces in the diagram, either side of the central vertical line. Either answer may be clued first, and the division is not necessarily marked by punctuation. Solvers must determine which goes where.

Competitors should also submit with their solutions a double clue to replace the asterisked definitions at 2 (which are presented in alphabetical order or their solutions).
