[holding answer 21 January 2008]: Following the meeting of officials with the hon. Gentleman and representatives of regional groups in December 2007, opportunities to advance the scheme have been reviewed.
I have asked that all these opportunities should be considered before the report is finalised. The Government Office for the East of England is working with the Department for Transport and other partners to finalise the report. I expect to receive the report during February 2008 and will send a copy of it to the hon. Member for South West Bedfordshire as soon as possible.
