I was reading a textbook and met this sentence on the topic of reporting speech.
She asked of staff that they continue to work as normal until details of the redundancies were given.
Previously, the textbook said that the verb in the reported clause is put in the past form,but then for some reason continue was put in the present, although the last verb is in the past were given.
Maybe because it is relevant in the present or there is some other reason? I would be happy to help
