We are pleased to say that we have received a total of 32 very helpful and constructive responses to our consultative document on technical aspects of a screening programme. These are being used in the development of plans for the next stage of work. We now plan to publish a second consultative document with our proposals by 11 April. This is a little later than we had hoped, but the change is necessary if we are to take proper account of the comments we have received.
