§ Mr. David Mitchell
The authority's review was carried out by means of an extensive consultation process about the issue, and its recommendations reflect the views expressed by a large number of respondents—listed in84W appendix 2 of its report, CAP 500. Since the review was published this House has debated it in detail, and there is a further debate in another place this week. In addition, I have received a good deal of correspondence about the review. Hence, the Government are already considering the recommendations with the benefit of very extensive consultation, and I do not think we should prolong that process which would inevitably delay our decision and leave the industry in a state of uncertainty.
