"if" - "will" clause
I have writtent the following sentence:
"John has not yet decided if he will pay a visit to the UK"
I understand the the grammar in this sentence is correct. What I would like to understand is why the no will after if rule does not apply to this sentence.
If the rule was applied, the sentence would read:
"John has not yet decided if he pays a visit to the UK"
Thank you in advance.
One follow up question.
Let's say today is Monday. Our colleagues need to send us a report on Friday.
Is it correct to ask them:
Please let us know if you will not be able to send the report on Friday.
I want an answer only if there is a problem with the report...
