I thank the Member for his question.  As I said, the draft language policy has been considered in tandem with the inputs from the political parties.  I can assure you that, as a Commission member, I am mindful of our statutory obligations when considering policies.  We are seeking political agreement on this, and, unfortunately, there are some who will turn languages into political footballs.  I am confident that, through the work we have already done, the Commission will come to a decision soon on a way forward with a very balanced viewpoint.
