§ Mr. Stunell
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he expects the Registrar General's options paper on access to registration records to be published. 
§ Ms Hewitt
I have now considered the Registrar General's options paper on access to civil registration records. It is proposed that a limited amount of prior consultation with stakeholders should be undertaken over the next few months. The outcome of this consultation will be taken into account when the proposals for reform arising from the Civil Registration review are published in the summer.
