May I also put on the record that the local residents' association prepared much of my speech and has done a great deal of hard work? It has put up an amazing case of objection without being heard properly. We were told that the record of having management and appraisal plans for only nine out of 28 conservation areas was not unusual, and that a vast number of local authorities with conservation areas are really dragging their feet on coming forward with proposals. Would the Minister like to comment on that, or would she drop me a note if she does not have figures on hand?
