Motion agreed to.

That the Parliament notes the content and recommendations of the 6th Report 2000 of the Social Inclusion, Housing and Voluntary Sector Committee, Inquiry into Drug Misuse and Deprived Communities.

On a point of order, Presiding Officer. I ask the advice of the chair on the protection of members in dealing with issues. I wrote to the Executive on a constituency matter and have just received, after nine months, an official correspondence as a reply. Is there any protection in standing orders for members in this situation?
