I will respond right away. I am very glad that the hon. Lady has raised this issue. It is something that I have been doing a huge amount of work on, along with the Under-Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, my hon. Friend Jo Churchill. We have been working on it intensively and, as I say, the backlog has come down by about half, but clearly there is much more to do.
