§ Mr. Peter Duncan
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) what weight will be given to public opinion in Scotland in completing her consultation on MSP numbers; 
(2) when she intends to conclude her consultation period on considering the number of Members of the Scottish Parliament; and how soon thereafter she will publish the results. 
§ Mrs. Liddell
I expect to make an announcement shortly about the consultation on the size of the Scottish Parliament.
