This hand is from the "Lady Milne," the British Ladies home international
1N opener is 14-16. You open fairly light
You do NOT play xyz in this auction: 2 would be natural, nf; 2 would be forcing, possibly artificial, not necessarily gf
Partner would rebid 1N on all balanced hands without four hearts (and would open 1 with 4=4 in the minors)

How would partner's opening bid and rebid style affect your bid: suppose
a) partner would raise to 2 with a minimum and three card support (a la Levin-Weinstein)
b) partner would always bid 1 with 4 spades and fewer than four hearts
c) partner would open 1 with 4=4 in the minors
d) suppose 2 would be gf

As an aside I would rebid 3 showing invitational values, at least five diamonds and five-plus hearts; that is not a universal agreement
