To ask Her Majesty's Government further to the Written Answer by Lord Davies of Oldham on 20 October 2009 (WA 65) stating that “Natural England's Stakeholder Working Group on Rights of Way is still expected to deliver its final report by the end of 2009”, what has caused the delay in delivering the report; and when the group is now expected to report. [HL1045]
The stakeholder working group largely completed its deliberations before the end of 2009. The group agreed that an additional meeting should be held in late January to enable members to seek and discuss any final comments from key contacts within their sectors on the package of recommendations it has developed. The group is expected to report in February.
