§ Mr. Lilley
The hon. Member no doubt intended to refer to non-domestic construction.
There have been a large number of written responses to the consultation paper issued on 21 June a number of 268W which commented on the timetable. The majority of those wanted the implementation date implied by my statement on 21 June (1 April 1989) to be deferred to 1 August 1989. All responses to the consultation paper are being considered carefully. Draft legislation is being prepared for exposure in the new year.
