We have already published our response to the Oakley Report and a copy can be found here:

We are considering all recommendations made by the Oakley Report and we have already implemented a number of improvements. Our response sets out a number of target completion dates for recommendations made by the Oakley Report.

We will look at the remaining recommendations and will keep the House informed on progress and implementation.
