I have been asked to reply.

I refer to my written statements of 2 December 2005, Official Report, columns 50-1WS and 16 February 2006, Official Report, columns 123-4WS.

Consultation concluded at the end of March and I am considering the 126 responses. While I am keen to make an announcement as soon as possible, this is an important and complex matter and I intend to give it full and careful consideration before doing so.
