As the hon. Lady will know, the Turner commission will report on 30 November. Ministers will then have the chance to respond and to continue the dialogue that is taking place across the country to gain a consensus—between political parties, I hope, as well as across the nation—on the way forward. The Prime Minister indicated at the beginning of October that we would make decisions during the next 12 months about the progression of the Government from that point, and at that stage we will of course make a statement to the House.
