holding answer 10 September 2008

To date, as part of the trading funds assessment, the Shareholder Executive team has heard the views of around 20-25 stakeholders from the private sector, as well as others from the public and third sectors. The private sector stakeholders have included customers, suppliers and competitors of the trading funds, small UK-based companies, large multinationals and representatives of trade associations and interest groups. It would not be appropriate to name the organisations individually because their contributions to and comments on the assessment have been to inform advice to Ministers and were on a non-attributable basis. The team will continue to seek the views of a large number of stakeholders as the assessment progresses. Any change in Government policy that arises as a result of the assessment will be subject to the appropriate public consultation.
