I am sorry that we have taken a long time over responding to the work of the Select Committee. I would rather publish a response that will actually take the right action, rather than put out something swiftly that is not going to do the job. I hope that my right hon. Friend will understand that we want to be doing things that ensure we address the issues she has raised.
