The advisory panel on the Members' Vote continues to monitor the system. I am pleased to be able to report substantial progress since my reply to my hon. Friend Andrew Mackinlay on 25 October 2001, Hansard, column 323W.

I am told that by close of play on 2 November 2001, a further 110 orders had been fulfilled, and a further six had been partly met, making a total of 272 orders fully completed and 61 part completed. During the same period, a further 32 Members had ordered equipment, bringing the total of Members who have placed orders to 500. I understand that all Members who ordered during the recess have been offered delivery dates before the end of November.
