A chair for the review will be appointed shortly. Given the interest in the legislation and, as Mary Fee says, the number of portfolios in the Parliament that the review crosses, a wide range of stakeholders will be involved in the work. I anticipate that the review will be quite a large piece of work, so, as I said to Miles Briggs, we need to get it right. I am unable to give firm timescales, because that would do an injustice to the work that the review body will do.
