After the 4 bid, North asked the meaning of 3. He was told it was nothing specific, just asking partner to continue describing his hand. North then passed, as did everyone else.

South led a diamond.  West felt that the question about diamonds indicated a desire for a diamond lead and therefore South should lead something different.  South felt that it was unclear as to whether there were any inferences to be drawn from the question, the auction has highlighted E/W weakness in diamonds and that there was no logical alternative to a diamond lead.  A lead poll has, at time of writing, resulted in 100% choosing a diamond lead, supporting the comments about no logical alternative. https://bridgewinners.com/article/view/lead-problem-2-jqh69gaxzx/

In this sort of situation, does North create UI by asking about the 3 bid and should South look for alternative leads if there are any?
