I am currently working towards a PhD in microbial genetics. Before that I spent a bit over a decade working as a programmer, with most of that time spent writing computer games. I have degrees in Mathematics (MMath), Life Sciences (BSc) and Molecular Genetics (MSc).

Thanks, egreg. Could you explain why is yours a better way of doing it? I put the apptocmd in the AtBeginEnvironment to avoid cross-contamination and just duplicated for the table environment.

Well, it seems that setspace messes with the float setup functions so that \@floatboxreset never gets called. By altering your suggestion so that instead of redefining \@floatboxreset it does \apptocmd{\@xfloat}{\small}{}{} I was able to get it to work.

Right, I found the responsible package - setspace stops it working - now I just need to figure out why

Thank you, egreg. However, while that works perfectly in the minimal test environment, it fails to work in my real document. Do you know if any packages would interfere with it?
