Subject: RE: Doc Roew gets through to Minister !!!
As I have written to him over two years ago, via my MP to point out this very matter, and it was put to him on his first appearance on Mike Harding's show (and again on his second), I think it not possible that this is really news to Dr Howells.
If it is news to him, then he and his department are even more incompetent that they appear as I suspect his comments were made more out of expediency, than of surprise.
As for progress, the words bolting stable doors after horses have left - springs to mind. For any influence Doc, EFDSS or anyone else can have now - is NOT on the Bill itself, but sadly only for the guidance to the Bill.
It has not been for the lack of many people trying to influence the Bill, however.
