There is an ongoing review of the services provided to Members, particularly security and ushering in the Building.  It has been a long, ongoing exercise; probably one of the longest in the business efficiency review.  So, it has taken time.  I think that management side and trade union side are taking a steer from the Assembly Commission, and they want it to be resolved amicably between trade union side and senior management.  I certainly hope that progress can be made.  As I indicated earlier, there is to be a further meeting within days to try to reconcile some of the other differences on the proposal in the business efficiency review.
